NEW CLASS: Drop in Clay

Check out our newest class – Drop in Clay – a reasonably priced one-time class that’s designed for those interested in trying the potter’s wheel but who don’t want to commit to a full session, just yet. 

Perfect for the beginner with no previous experience — or — for those who have taken pottery classes before and want to get their hands on clay again.

Learn the basics of wheel throwing and the use of underglaze colors on the pieces you make. 

Each two and a half hour class will be geared to the skill level and experience of the students. Clay, tool use, glaze and firing for up to two pieces are included in the fee.

Each class will be limited to 8 students, so you will have lots of one-on-one time with your teacher. 

Multiple classes can be purchased and may be shared between different individuals. Get a discount when you sign up for one of our six week class sessions.
