Had a great time with the entire family. The instruction was great and it was super cool being able to work in the studio amongst the artists for a couple hours. We were all super thrilled with our finished pieces, even if it meant destroying them at the end!


Helpful, patient, informative instructor. Fun and a great experience. Highly reccommend. Went with my teenage granddaughter

What a wonderful experience. Our instructor, Joan, was very knowledgeable and patient. It was a very fun introductory course of throwing pottery with a wheel.


Had a super fun experience at Paseo!!! We got to learn the basics about throwing pottery on a wheel, and it inspired both of us to take a series of classes once we got back home to Colorado! Thank you Paseo--and Aio for the fun class!!


Wow—I attended the monthly pottery throw-down and it was fabulous! What a special way to support community, fun atmosphere, delicious drinks, super friendly folks and playing with clay was so much fun! ✨


Wonderful event for Hospitality group in Santa Fe. Hands on potter's wheel, hand building and a great group of knowledgeable assistants! The owner, Angela, was very personable and the volunteers were amazing!


My BFF and I had the most fun making weird pots at Paseo. Through Paseo's patient and helpful guidance, we crafted memories and had a wonderful experience.


A great experience for both novices and experienced parties in our group. Highly recommend. A highlight of the trip.


Christopher was fantastic. He provided both demonstration and then hands-on where required. The space is modern, comfortable and the cocktails were a plus.


It was a wonderful trip. Our hosts were great, and the porter sculpture is a big hit at home. I highly recommend this!
