Really enjoyed our mug making! This truly was an enjoyable experience! Looking forward to receiving the mug. When you create things that you can use and surround yourself with those things it is a positive way to live life :)

We were looking for a relaxing fun couples class for a date after a stressful few weeks. This was perfect! Jennifer is fun, welcoming, and super smart. Classes are small and mellow. We had awesome classmates and had a ton of anxiety-relieving fun. Plus we get some unique coffee mugs on top of it. Thank you, Jennifer! It was wonderful to meet you, and we had a great time!

It was an amazingly fun class! It was very relaxed, very comfortable, and allowed for a lot of creativity, It was easy to chat and just enjoy the time, while also being very easy to ask for help or guidance on the pieces we were making. I highly recommend others do this too! It made for a great surprise date night.

Jenny's mug class was wonderful! My partner and I did it as a date and had a blast. She does a good job at making the creative process fun and accessible for artists and for people who are new to creating and using clay. Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed my visit. I wore my mask and Jenny immediately put hers on to match my unspoken preference. Jenny explained and showed me what my options were, how I would work with the clay and then let me practice multiple options while making suggestions. I really enjoyed this experience and would do it again without hesitation. Jenny is engaging and funny and a great host. I also enjoyed the location in Hillsboro and Jenny provided some recommendations for me after leaving her studio since I am only visiting Portland.

Jenny's mug making experience was wonderful! Jenny provided a lot of ways to make the mugs feel very personalized and gave helpful and clear instructions and guidance all throughout the session, but also allowed it to be very hands-on for us to make the mugs ourselves. It was a great experience and I'd highly recommend it!

We had a great time painting our pet portraits with Jenny! She is knowledgeable, helpful, and very personable- and at the end, you get to take home a wonderful painting that is impossible not to be proud of. Would definitely go back again to paint my other animals!

Such a great time! Jenny is very knowledgeable about painting and personal enough to where you almost forget she is guiding the way for your regular painting to become a pet-inspired masterpiece. Thanks again for having us :)
