I am very sorry to say that I had a mostly unhappy experience at the Greenwich House Pottery. It was my first time taking pottery, and I was very excited. I found the teacher Whitney to be mostly detached and uninterested, the overall working atmosphere to be complicated and very crowded, and the overall experience to be very disappointing. Since then, I have shared my feelings with others who have taken pottery there for years, and have had on and off very mixed feelings about staying or leaving for similar reasons. A friend of mine who was there for years because she lived literally across the street and it was so convenient recently moved on to another studio because she could not take it anymore. I have since then myself been doing pottery at another studio in the Village, and it has been a difference of night and day- the teacher is amazing, cannot be more helpful and more talented, the place is happy, spacious and colorful, and everyone seems to be having a great time. What is really bad is that I called the Director Adam to give him feedback about my negative experience, and instead of showing interest and concern and offer maybe some conciliatory words or even a one time trial class with a good teacher, he totally resisted my comments, and even became openly unpleasant with me. When leadership does not hear what community members have to say, it is usually bad news for the organization. So before you enroll in Greenwich House Pottery, think of trying another studio first. You might be much happier.
