Class Description: 
ALL of our classes are mixed-level (novice to experienced) and include pottery wheel and hand-building ceramics instruction. We all learn from one another! Students can execute their own project ideas or can ask teachers for project ideas.

Hand-building methods taught include pinching, coiling, slabbing, sculpting/modeling, extruding and more. On the potter's wheel you will learn, with lots of practice, to make cups, bowls, vases, plates and even composite pieces like teapots.

Please make sure to bring:
  • An apron (or wear clothing you don't mind dirtying). Making pottery is messy business.
  • A towel you don't mind dirtying
  • Pottery-Making Tools
  • Masking tape, on which you will shut tight your wrapped drying pieces and write your name, so they're always easily findable
  • If you have it, the studio is always in need of clean dry cleaner's clothing plastic covers. We wrap our drying projects in plastic. If you don't have this DON'T WORRY. We will have some on hand for you.
