Customer Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I was looking for a place to try the wheel pottery and finally I found it. I really liked the wheel workshop. The instructor was very nice and helpful. He showed us how to make a bowl step by step. Then after we finished making our bowls - they let us paint it the way we want. I really enjoyed this experience. Perfect place for a group gathering, birthdays etc!” - Yulia T.
