TESTIMONIAL OFF TRIPADVISOR 

Reviewed by Vicki E

My daughter booked for her and I to come one afternoon for 2 hrs of fun. We LOVED it! A couple were in finishing off their accomplishments (for her 40th), a party were booked in for the weekend (there’s a flat you can book too!)- for someone’s 50th, -Rachel has had every event, and even a 90 yr old. Rachel is incredibly skilled and talented- she is a wonderful teacher. Katie and I made wide dishes, each being given the tricks of the trade and so much help as required, then the crowning glory was to use paints and streak them up the sides whilst on the spinner! Hilarious. I can only say you will have such a whale of a time, lots of fun and have something to show for your efforts- I can’t wait to return to collect after it’s been in the kiln!
