I signed up for an eight-week class at Choplet. After my first class, I discovered that I had a tumor that paralyzed my right arm and required immediate surgery. Facing a mountain of medical bills and up to two months of lost income during recovery, I reached out to Choplet to see if I could get a partial refund. The owner Nadeige sounded hesitant but said she would try to find someone to fill my spot. The next day, she instead suggested that I find a friend or family member to take my spot. Somewhat flustered, I responded that I was preoccupied with my upcoming surgery and probably wasn't up to that task. Sensing that we weren't getting anywhere, I asked if I could instead get my partial refund in the form of class credit for a future Choplet class if/when I recovered. Was still willing to give them a chance at this point. But Nadeige emailed me back with a flat out refusal, and took the extra step of blaming me for not cancelling before the first class happened. She complained that it was much harder to find me a replacement that way. Well Nadeige, I can agree with you that I wish they'd found my tumor earlier. I wish it hadn't progressed to the point where it disabled my arm and needed invasive surgery. But I understand it has been hard for you too - I feel better at least that you have my money for seven classes that I'll never take, the clay I'll never use, and the firing fee you'll never have to work for, all to warm your cold selfish heart. Don't let the cute studio space fool you. Choplet is as greedy and soulless as any chain corporation and will stop at nothing to suck you dry of your money.

I have taken many pottery classes over the years and have always worked on the wheel. While thoroughly enjoyable, I was blown away by the variety of creative, hand-building ideas I saw come alive in clay at Choplet. I went to the studio to observe a class on a January night 2 and a half years ago. What struck me was how every student was working on a different project, some hand building, some throwing on the wheel. Needless to say, I have been a student ever since and have not yet gone back to the wheel. I am happy with the other "hand-builders" in the class and thrilled with my progress as an artist. I have seen many students go from beginners - both hand-builders and wheel-throwers - to selling their work and getting orders to produce. The support and collaboration that I have with my instructor has been invaluable. If I have an idea, she helps me realize it. And, lets not forget the studio dog, Cosmo. Always there to greet you, but more often napping away blissfully. He makes life very cozy at Choplet. Come join us. You wont be disappointed!

Great space, friendly teachers, warm community... an excellent place for beginning and more advanced students. There is a lot of open studio time and a convenient class schedule. The gallery is full of beautiful work. Highly recommended.
