What a lovely experience. Jean-Michel is a very skilled ceramist and with his guidance you are sure to make something beyond your expectation. Time flew by and at the end we had not only created many different items, but also shared nice stories and got to know the life of an artist in Cannes. Truly recommend for those looking for a unique experience.

Expérience unique sur les hauteurs de Cannes, dans une agréable résidence avec jardin, mon amie et moi avons été replongés en enfance à l'odeur et au contact de la terre. Nous avons réalisé plein de jolis objets (un vase, deux mugs, etc.) totalement personnalisés sous l'accompagnement de Jean-Michel, artiste disponible et avenant. Nous vous recommandons fortement cette belle expérience si vous êtes de passage à Cannes ou dans ses environs.

Nous avons passé une merveilleuse matinée avec Jean-Michel. Il est très pédagogue et nous avons pu réaliser les pièces que nous souhaitions. Jean-Michel est de très bons conseils. Nous recommencerons cette expérience avec plaisir. Il nous a également fait visiter son atelier et présenté l'ensemble de ses réalisations. C'était très intéréssant.

I went to this experience not knowing what to expect, together with my boyfriend. First of all the studio was just perfect. The exact atmosphere you’d like to be surrounded by to get creative. Jean Michel is a fantastic teacher, who is very passionate about his love for ceramics/art which just makes this experience even more fantastic! Our results are way better than at least I myself expected and all credits go to J-M’s teaching! We would highly recommend this experience - we will remember it as a wonderful addition to our pleasant holiday in the Cote D’azur!!
