What students say about this Clay Sculpture & Pottery class:

Gail H. (June 2022)
I’ve been attending Raewyn’s clay sculpting class on a Tuesday evening for a few years now.  The class has a lovely vibe where everyone gets along really well and we have fun. Raewyn is an excellent teacher and lets us work at our own pace and explore different ideas and techniques, which I personally have found very helpful.

Christine M. (July 2022)
Great class with regular attendees – social, fun, supportive and freedom to explore creative endeavours with guidance when and as needed.
