Class size is LIMITED so register in advance! 883-4407
Payment by cash, check or credit card is due upon registration. The classes are kept fairly small (4-6) in the interest of giving the students plenty of room to work and more personal instruction. Students can focus on growing as individuals with lots of personal attention from instructor. Various methods of construction will be shown such as pinch pots, coil and slab building. The only limit is your imagination.
We offer classes to beginner and intermediate students who want to explore working with clay. It is suggested that you bring an old towel, and wear old clothing…you will likely get muddy. All work goes through two kiln firings; the second firing will make the pottery safe for food and drink, as well as use in microwave oven and dishwasher. We use only health-approved clays and glaze-materials. The drying and firing process takes time so a piece may not be ready to take home for 2 weeks or more.
Kids under age 8 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
