Mike and his crew are exceptional! We loved Hunter who helped with our pottery class. The whole staff is friendly and very helpful. The staff seemed like family and treated us like we were family as well. We will definitely be returning!

Hi: You need to contact Fowler's directly. I don't work for them. I was just a student in their class. You will really enjoy the class. It's a ton of fun and the staff is so easy to work with. Have fun.
