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!

Summer Classes in July and August -



There are many options for adults,children and parent-child combos all during the summer!

1) A class once a week either during the day or in the evening for 6 weeks. Since there are only a maximum of 6 students in a class, we can decide on the day of the week and the time together. Just let me know what day and time suit you best. Cost is $104, supplies included. And you if you can get a few people together, there can be a special 6-week pottery session for just your group. Coat is $104 per person which includes all supplies and taxes.
2) A class every day for a week at the same time each day. Again, just let me know what week(s) and time fits your schedule. This works really well for grandparents who have grandkids visiting them in the summer. It gives some structure without taking up the entire day. Cost is $104, supplies and taxes included.
I know getting people together for summer classes when we need to work around holidays is like herding cats! Right now, I'm trying to get people together for a continuous 6-week pottery session, with 90 minute classes once a week, starting the week of July 18 and ending the week of August 22. With only 4 to 6 in a class, I'm hoping a day and time can be agreed upon easily by those participating in the class. Also, a session doesn't have to happen in 6 consecutive weeks, nor does it need to be on the same night every week. With a bit of luck, with so few in a class, I can work around everyone's schedule.

Summer Sessions

For children, adults, and parent/grandparent-child combos. Try something new and out-of-the-ordinary this summer. There are between 4 and 6 students in a class. Classes either once a week for 6 weeks or a class every day (at the same time) for a week. The cost is $104 for classes which last 90 minutes and $150 for classes lasting two hours. This includes taxes, two firings, and all tools and glazes.

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.

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!



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 $30 per person. 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.
