Pottery Classes

CLASSES_IMAGE

Classes are available for children, teens, adults, and parent/grandparent-child combos.

Perfect for beginners !!

During these classes, students learn the various hand-building techniques and throw pots on one of the pottery wheels. The use of color and decoration to augment and enrich projects is also taught. Students have full creative control over what they want to make, while I'm on hand for instruction and to offer suggestions.

Classes have between 4 and 6 students per class. The cost for all 6-week sessions with a 90 minute class once a week is $104 per person. This includes clay, glazing, two firings, all tools and colored slips for decoration and taxes. All pots are oven proof and food safe.

It's fun, relaxing, mesmerizing and challenging. Fabulous things are happening in these classes!

After School Classes

Are on the same day each week, either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Classes are 90 minutes long. They can start at 3, 4:30, 5 or 5:30 depending on what students in each class need. Because classes are limited to between 4 to 6 students, it’s quite easy deciding which time suits
them best.

Evening Classes

Start at 5:30, 6 or 7pm on the same day each week. Classes are 90 minutes long and are limited to 6 students. Other times could be available too if I have enough people to form a small group.

Day Time Classes

I have 2 people interested in a daytime class and only need 2 more to form a class. It will be on a day and at a time to be decided by the group. This class follows the same format as the evening classes except it’s during the day. Class size is limited to 4 or 5 students making a nice, cozy group.

Create-your-own Class

If you can get 6 (ideally), family or friends together, I’d be pleased to teach a special 6-week session with your group at a time that fits your schedule. It’s really fun and exciting to learn a new skill along side people you know! And a daytime session would work too. A good idea for students or anyone else who wants to add a whole new dimension to their everyday life!

Summer Sessions

For children, adults, and parent/grandparent-child combos. Try something new and out-of-the-ordinary this summer. 90 minute pottery classes are the same time every day, Monday to Friday for a week. There is also an extra glaze class later once the projects are completely dry and fired once to 1800F. That means that each session includes 6 classes in total. There are between 4 and 6 students in a class. The cost is $104 which includes taxes, two firings, all tools and glazes.
Gift Certificates are available!

Special Pottery Classes

Try a creative activity with people you know in a pottery class tailored for your specific needs. These special classes are 90 minutes to 2 hours long. The cost is $35 per person for 2 or 3 people, $30 per person for 4 to 8 people. This includes all taxes, instruction, two firings, and clay. Make a bowl, creature, planter, tooth brush/pencil/candle holder. I teach a technique and everyone makes one special creation using what they’ve learned. That means that most of the time everyone is making something different — their own one-of-a-kind creation! Exercise your sense of adventure and try a new, creative opportunity that’s fun in a cozy, home-studio space. Projects are glazed in a color of your choice to make them oven, water proof and food safe.
