Amazing throwing course

I had 8 sessions of throwing on the wheel with Karl. He was a very patient and friendly teacher, he knows so much about pottery and the island as well. I had a very good time there and improved a lot under his instruction.

The Pottery Garden BVI is a serenely welcoming and beautiful place to be! The pieces themselves are unique and creatively inspired! My favorite part of this experience was learning how to use the spinning wheel. Karl was such a great teacher and his love and knowledge for his craft was clearly evident. I especially loved his helper, his son Kem, who confidently knew what he was doing even at such a young age! It was beautiful to see the support and help his wife Cristal also gave, sharing her insight and also encouraging while he instructed. The entire experience was fun, educational without being overwhelming and even left me with a few life lessons! I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone and would absolutely do it again! Can't wait!
An Experience Worth Having!

Karl was very accommodating, as he was willing to have a lesson for my boyfriend and I even though he wasn't open to the public today. He made our first time experience very pleasant. He was very patient and knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable. By way of instructive teaching he helped us to try and perfect our pieces as much as we could. He also stressed that we were there to have fun, so we should be relaxed and freely express ourselves through whatever form of art we wanted to create.

Also, the ambiance was very nice and relaxing, with lots of plants (he took the time to share with us the names, origin and uses of each of them). The experience was worth having and I would highly recommend!!
Pottery fun!

This has been the best out of water experience I have had on Tortola!!!! Karl provided an excellent demo at the wheel with very thorough instructions and hands in assistance. As you can see my husband and I didn’t make masterpieces, but had a blast! We have been laughing about our terrible creations knowing full well we are having them shipped to us and will likely paint them and display on the mantle. Fellas, my husband had a ton of fun too. Karl offers hand building creations with clay also. We have been stuck on the Great British Pottery show and had to take a turn at the wheel. This experience is appropriate for children also. Also, Karl will show you the garden and kilns which are also cool to see. Thanks for the fantastic experience Karl!!!!
