This experience was a lot of fun! I was the only one there, so I had a personalized lesson and plenty of time to learn to do it right. :-

I went with my 14 yo daughter who likes all sort of art. We enjoyed it very much and David, the artist/owner is such a nice person as is his assistant. You can spend then a couple of hours discovering the veri interesting area around the studio.
