“I am absolutely happy with the skills I got during the pottery sessions with Oya and with how the mugs we made together turned out. Shaping clay with Oya was much more than attending a pottery class, it was a great social experience! I felt like I was talking to a long-time friend. I highly recommend it to anyone.”

Laila

“We took a pottery class with two of my friends and enjoyed every moment of it! Oya was an amazing teacher and she made sure we were happy throughout the whole time. We made our own unique mugs and will cherish the time we had forever! Thank you so much for everything!”

“My son and I treated ourselves with “a meet the clay” workshop with Oya. It was during those weeks of miserable weather and we felt the sunshine as soon as we entered the studio and met Oya and her magic smile. I was quite new to ceramics and I quickly enjoyed shaping the clay under the benevolent guidance of Oya. Her technical advice taught in a calm and effective way helped me understand how I should work with the clay to give it the shape I had in mind; it was a real active meditation for me! I was in a different world for a few hours, forgetting everything else and enjoying my time. We both made flower vases, very different, guided by our sensibility and Oya’s experience. We were very happy with our creations and agreed we would come back to finish them in a “meet the glaze” workshop. Which we did and loved, another different and very interesting experience. Many many thanks to Oya for these beautiful and peaceful moments of sharing and happiness!”
