From Natalie's classes, I learned to build my own plaster moulds, manage the slip casting process, glaze and fire my first ceramic pieces. The teaching was stimulating, clear and presented bite-sized modules that were perfect for a beginner. She taught the fundamentals and opened my eyes to the extensive possibilities of molded ceramics. I would recommend her classes and look forward to further learning with her as a teacher. - Shanda D
