I absolutely loved exploring my inner potter with Anastasia. It was everything I hoped for, personal and insightful. I learned so many different techniques and Anastasia was great at listening to where I wanted to go with my practice. Could not have been more happy with my experience!

My partner and I had a wonderful time with Anastasia. She was a kind and patient teacher and never hesitated to answer any questions about what we were doing in the studio or about her own work. We had limited to no prior experience with ceramics, but in just 4 days in the studio, we were able to learn about and try out so many different techniques. Since we arranged to have a slightly shorter VAW Read more

I loved the mixture of art making, conversations on culture and creativity, and explorations of nature through hiking. Anastasia was an amazingly generous, thoughtful, and endlessly interesting host.

It was a very inspiring Read more

There was never a dull moment during my VAWAA with Anastasia. She welcomed me into her home, introduced me to her joyful family, showed me sights, beaches and local ceramicists that inspire her. She works with an abundance of clays and techniques- the learning was exponential. We had a flexible schedule that allowed for bursts of morning energy and creativity into the night. She is a natural teach Read more

My two sons (18 & 21) and I had a wonderful time w/Anastasia and would very highly recommend the experience. We spent the day and she provided an overview of ceramic materials, her background and showed us around her studio. We enjoyed the passion she has for her art, the space she works in (an area of her home) and having the opportunity to meet her family, w/whom we shared a lovely lunch (whic Read more
