I enjoyed learning how to use the Wheel at La Mano Pottery, but I would not consider this to be a two hours hands on class. The first 20-30 minutes was watching the instructor give a tutorial. We used the wheel for about 50 minutes, and our instructor asked us to start cleaning up 40 minutes before the workshop was suppose to end. The cleaning was also very intensive where we had to clean the entire wheel. I wish I knew more about the cleaning process before going into the class and buying the groupon. I feel more confident with my pottery skills after taking this class.

This class was ok. Not all of the pottery wheels worked and the pace of the class didn't make sense. It was really hard to follow or remember all of the steps in the half hour demo in the beginning of class and it would have been more useful for the teacher to demonstrate as the class was moving on. The teacher also ended the class early and had us clean up for half an hour (no joke)- she even told a few folks that their stations weren't clean enough. I wouldn't recommend this course if you are looking for a fun night out- there was too much cleaning for that.

The teacher was great! Patient and helpful. But the environment was just so so. And I think the group was too big.

My friend and I had a good time making our pieces. The instructor was patient and helpful. It is great for people that like to make things with their hands, fun overall.

Loved the class and getting to play with clay. It was nice to use my hands for two hours and be focusing on that... a great form of meditation. The only issue I had was that the instructor who was supposed to lead the class didn't show up. We had to wait for about 20 minutes until they could find someone to lead the group, who typically doesn't teach this class so I wonder if the instruction would have been slightly more helpful if we had the actual teacher. They also had us finish almost on time, meaning the two hour class was cut short. Otherwise, it's a great activity and was a nice way to spend the evening.
