The instructor. Nisa? was excellent . She was knowledgeable and helpful in her instruction. What I really want to compliment her on is how sensitive she was to each person in the group. My husband has beginning Alzheimer’s so processing the instruction was extremely difficult for him. With the help of our daughter and miss he was able to complete the two pieces without feeling totally self-conscious or embarrassed. Hats off to your studio!! Thank you!! I look forward to seeing my finished pieces as well!
it was a great time! patient instructors and knowledgeable. i would've liked more time to just play with the clay and get more of a feel with the wheel throwing
Very fun and instructor easily taught us the techniques. Great time
I feel like I've hit the jackPot! Pun intended. Everyone at Sculpture by Sylvie is friendly, knowledgeable, talented and I live right down the street! I was so happy with my experience in the wheel throwing class that I instantly became a member. I've taken a 7 week wheel throwing workshop before and was never able to successfully make anything. After just one class, with the amazing instruction of Anisa, I was able to pull a close to perfect cylinder! She not only showed me by example, but instructed me as I was working which was super effective. I highly recommend this studio for artists of all levels!
It was a a lot of fun. Annisa was super prepared and talented! I was surprised how different each piece came out. I would definitely recommend it.
Had a great time! I would recommend this to anyone on the fence.
Wonderful experience. The two hours class is perfect to work on two small pieces and practice the basics. The studio is very welcoming, cozzy and cool. Anesa, our teacher was great and very patient with me and my son during the whole class. My son, who wasn't sure before the class if he was going to like it, told me after we left "i really loved it". I highly recommend it!!
We were very happy! I just have a comment: perhaps Sylvie went a little too fast. But we had a lot of fun! Thank you!
Sylvie was very kind and helpful. We enjoyed our wheel throwing experience immensely and would go back again.
The wheel throwing class done by Anissa was a very informative and fun class. I had a wonderful time and will definitely be back for more. Thanks!
We had an overall good time.
It was a fun first experience at wheel throwing, Alyssa my instructor was friendly and professional! I definitely recommend this place.
It was my first time doing any wheel throwing and I have to say that I had an amazing time. The teacher was very patient and explained us all the steps. She also made the class very fun and enjoyable. Definitely a great experience that I recommend.
We had a wonderful time and thought our instructor was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, helpful, and fun. Our only feedback would be that the group class should be less than 6 people. Perhaps 2-4 participants would be an ideal group size. We felt like each participant needed individualized attention since we were all generally brand new to wheel-throwing, which ended up becoming a bit confusing and overwhelming for the group since participants were often working on different stages simultaneously. The instructions could have been more clear at times when it comes to explaining what we should expect from (what the goal was) for each step in the process. However, we realized this is definitely a challenging activity that requires a developed skill set, which neither my husband nor I possess. We are willing to try the activity again or something else related to pottery or clay building. We would definitely recommend your studio as your staff is friendly and welcoming. Thank you. We are looking forward to receiving our final glazed items!
Anissa is a great and patient teacher. The studio is very accommodating.
Anissa was very nice and helpful. Great class!

Patience and making the customer feel relax on his first experience was key, me and my wife had a great time.

We had such a fun time! Sylvie was great!
The best place in town extent teacher
My wife hadn't been on a pottery wheel ever and I last used one in High School. It was very cool to get a chance to work with clay and the wheel again. It's awesome how when you get in that seat and it draws you in and really gets you focused. With a little help from Alli and Sylvie my wife ended up with a nice piece. I still need some practice but ended up with a couple "mostly" cup shape pieces that will be fun to glaze and use for knick-knacks. We had a great time learning from Alli, as she was with us the whole time teaching us all the cool moves. Loved it! Definitely something different and great to share with others. Thank you Alli and Sylvies for a very nice time. - Rob and Lisa Haley
The session was great, however, this was my first experience with clay, so I hoped Sylvie would allow us to play with clay first, get the feel of it, learn from mistakes, learn the media intuitively. Also, music would be great to have, some game or jokes. I would have been happy if Sylvie offered us to take a picture of us, as we cannot do it ourselves with hands in clay. Finally, a quick overview at the beginning of what we are going to do would be nice. We didn't know what we are molding, we didn't know if we can take it home with us. I was disappointed to find out that I can't have it with me right away, it kind of reduced my satisfaction with my work.
Ali was very friendly and helpful. It was my fits time and she was very encouraging and told me about all the different packages and rates. She mentioned emailing me the photos she took but I haven't received them yet, please remind her. I loved the class & will do it again.
My mom and I both had an amazing time. It was both our first times wheel throwing and we learned a great deal while also having a lot of fun. We will definitely be back to participate in the other classes offered.
Excellent class! Had a great time and would definitely recommend!!

My wife and I attended a two hour wheel throwing pottery class. It was a lot of fun. The group was small, only four people so we were all able to get plenty of personal attention. Sylvie was a pleasure to work with. She was bery patient and eager to help us learn to use the wheel for making pottery. I would highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn a new skill and to have fun doing it. There were a lot of laughs among our group and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable evening.
People were very friendly and let you continue with project end. If you were not successful the first two tries. They made the experience very fun and interacted with each person
Very patient instructor, great atmosphere. Overall great class.
Sylvie was very knowledgeable, had patience, and was very nice. We had a great time!
We were pleased with the one on one service and for the extreme patience the instructor had. It was fun, lad-back, relaxing, and would definitely return.
We had a great time! Thank you!
Class was fun informative and we loved everything. Sylvie and our instructor were both fantastic.
Sylvie, the instructor, was patient, informative and fun. The studio was easy to find and parking was ample. Would like to return for another class.
The instructor was very patient. Especially when i was royally messing up my piece. The owner was really understanding and made rescheduling easy. The location was easy to find. The place was cool. I will definitely be returning.
