Imagine that you were given a piece of clay. It is soft, moist and responds to every touch of your fingers. It is cold, but warms up from your body’s temperature. You can mold it into anything you’d like. What would you make?

Would you not even know where to start because of how many ideas you have? Or would you like to be guided, inspired and shown the way?

At Gaean Gardens we help you become free of expectations and step into a joyful exploration where anything is possible, all rules can be broken. This will help you connect to yourself so you can start trusting your own body, your own creativity.

My 16 y.o. daughter and I did a pottery class with Izabela. It was a beautiful bonding experience for us… we had a WONDERFUL experience! Izabela was the perfect teacher – she explained things so well and taught us how to create our own masterpieces with such patience and pleasure. My daughter is so proud of her creation, she uses her little pot almost every day! Creating pottery with Izabela is something that we will continue to do. I would HIGHLY recommend taking a class with Izabela. It’s an incredibly special and enjoyable experience!
