Learning and creating under the encouraging eyes of Diane was an absolute pleasure. She understands the beginner mind in all of her direction and draws us into the story of clay. It is not just a lump on the wheel but a living organic mass that has been millions of years in the making. Once it is all said and done I find myself wanting to dive deeper into its existence and continue to learn in her studio.

I have taken many pottery classes in my time. My best experience by far was at eARTh Studios with Diane. Diane is a natural teacher with decades of experience and it shows. Her new teaching studio is well-equipped, serene, inspiring, and enjoyable to work in. She orders the best clay for its intended purpose (wheel or hand building) and her glazes are both gorgeous and reliable. No matter where you are in your clay journey, Diane will be able to help you move forward. Whether you are an absolute beginner or seasoned veteran, hand-builder or wheel-thrower, young or old, there will be a class for you. Diane's warm and encouraging nature, coupled with her unending patience will make you feel at ease (even when the clay is "not co-operating"). I can not recommend eARTh Studios enough.

Hand built mug was a great night out for my partner and I. Diane was an incredible teacher and it was clear she loves what she does to the point of contagion. Will be back!
