"Suzy Birstein embraces the history and culture of the tiny Island of Skopelos Greece as she takes great care in ensuring her students experience all there is to see and do in this uniquely beautiful setting.
Studying clay sculpture and surface decoration with this wonderful artist in such beautiful surroundings facilitated not only a creatively inspiring experience, but also a restoration of mind and spirit. I have come away with an understanding and love of Greek art, Skopelos Island and Suzy. It was an experience I shall cherish forever. "

"Never been to Greece ... never worked with clay. Yikes! BUT....... travelling with Suzy and beholding the wonders of Athens & Delphi before we started the workshop was an amazing experience. And just when I thought I couldn't be amazed any more we arrived in Skopelos. For two weeks we became Greek residents, the accommodations, food, people & art academy were incredible. I am an artist who works on canvas but with Suzy's direction my inner muse created some pretty awesome clay pieces. Can't wait to go back in September 2013!"
