Throwing was a lot of fun. This was my first time. The weather was pretty bad so half the class showed up which was nice because we all got a lot of individual instruction; Liz was great! Wish this place was closer. I would definitely be a regular.

Loved the class. Fun but also great individual guidance for different skill levels. We took a class at a different studio and GnarWare was by far superior. Will be scheduling another class soon.

Instructor was welcoming and took the time to explain wheel throwing, the good and the bad. I’d go back for another round!
