What you'll do

I take my guest through our backyard and show my garden if they are interested in the tropical plants and trees growing around my studio. If there is a season for some of the rare fruits I will make a fruit tasting.
Then I show my pottery studio and equipment needed to create ceramic work. I will explain my process of creating and answer all questions asked. After the yard tour, we go inside my airconditioned studio where I already prepared everybody's work area to create.
I offer some tea, wine, and snacks before our hands get dirty.
Most of my guest come with an idea already and they are ready to jump in. If somebody doesn't know how to start I will give ideas and instructions. This experience is for hand-building in a small group, not for wheel throwing, although there is an option to play with the wheel if somebody is interested.
All pieces can be taken home half done or finished.

Monika was super nice and friendly. This was such a lovely experience with my daughter while we were in town for a week. Although we weren't able to take home a finished product, (we couldn't put it in the kin because we had to be in town for a couple more weeks) the experience itself was very valuable. It was so much fun just to be able to play with clay and meet other people there who were regulars. We had so much fun making our own product and also listening to other delightful conversations and soothing music! Monika was also super sweet and lovely!

Monika’s clay class is a wonderful way to relax and explore a new craft! She was an incredible host and one of the sweetest and coolest! Her backyard is gorgeous! Her studio is very legit and the possibilities are endless! she will teach you as you go to help make your clay creation or you can go solo! She makes the experience very fun and hopefully will get to do again one day!

What a fun girls night out! I went with my sister and we had such a great time learning how to work with clay. The vibe was relaxing, there was music playing and a variety of snacks and beverages served. I even exchanged contact info with one of the other guests (she happens to live in my neighborhood across town). Will definitely return!

What a great overall experience. There were many levels of experience and Monika made each of us very comfortable and was hands on if needed. The location is very serene and peaceful with beautiful gardens. She has a great studio and lots of workspace so we had plenty of room to be creative. Food and beverages good as well and fun group. I look forward to this experience again.

I bought this experience for my wife because she wanted to try something new. The rest of this review is from her. The location of the event was spectacular. The setting was very country-like with beautiful gardens worthy of photography. Her studio, where you play with the clay, was very professionally set up so you could interact with everyone attending, and share ideas in a fun, relaxing setting. Being new to clay, it was amazing how helpful Monika was with everyone, giving suggestions in a one-on-one setting, while still maintaining the group activity. This was definitely geared toward all skill levels. There were plenty of snacks and a wide variety of beverages. I cannot wait to do this again.

Monika is very knowledgable in a variety of creative techniques. We did hand-building, that evening. Everyone in our class was fun and friendly. Monika made us all feel welcome and provided great snacks. I really enjoyed the tour of her garden, too. I will definitely be back!
