Reviewed by Jay S. on 7/2/2019
This course was really great! Tina has made it easy for beginners to become comfortable with working on the wheel and for first time clay experience. I've learned a lot and feel comfortable continuing my skills and working with clay. Thank you, Tina, for your patience and teachings!
