8-Week Classes are currently on hold due to Covid-19
Join our mailing list or follow along on social media to receive updates!

Our classes are for all levels – from beginner to advanced- it’s never too late to learn something new, and there is always room to improve and grow.

 

Everyone goes at their own pace, and lessons are tailored to each student.  This craft can be what you want it to be, and you can make of it what you will.

 

Our goal here as educators is to lead our students to a place where they can think and work independently in the clay medium.

We focus on a strong foundation that can be built upon indefinitely by teaching not just how, but also why.

A single 8-week course will give a full introduction to the entire process.

Subsequent courses after that will build upon prior experience.

We’re proud to be able to say that many of our students convert to members once they’ve found solid ground.

 

All 8-week sessions are 18+

Wheel classes

Learning how to throw a pot on the wheel is similar to learning how to play an instrument- just a little bit messier.

It involves learning the theory, the language, building muscle memory, a bit of rhythm, and lots of practice- And that is just the beginning – There are different steps and skillsets that go into making a finished pot, all fun and challenging in their own way, and in our 8 week courses we learn and discuss them all.

Monday 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Tuesday 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Thursday  7:00 – 9:00 pm

Tuesday & Thursday  10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Hand building classes

Pottery was being made long before the invention of the wheel…
In our Hand building course we talk about clay as a material, different techniques for construction, and how to apply them to whatever it is you choose to create – whether it’s functional or sculptural.

Think of it more as woodworking with a malleable material, or painting 3-dimensionally.

 

Wednesday 6:30 – 8:30 pm
