    My girlfriend and me had a wonderful afternoon learning pottery as absolute beginners from Gioia. After getting our hands on the clay first to get a feeling for it we quickly proceeded to work with the potter´s wheel. Gioia did some great explanations and showed us the basic techniques which enabled us to make some bowls. Working with the clay, creating something yourself and learning something new was a really great experience.

    I've had a few lessons and learned a lot! From being a total newbie to becoming a confident beginner, I've improved my throwing skills thanks to Gioia's patience, experience, and teaching style. I attended both with friends and on my own and enjoyed myself in both settings. Located right next to Broadway Market, I attended my class and had a lovely lunch afterwards. 10/10 experience!
