Classes

ADULT or TEEN CLASS

This pottery class is designed for students 15 years and older, and covers a six-week term, with each class lasting 2-1/2 hours for adults and 2 hours for teens.

Beginning students can start with an introduction to basic hand-building techniques, including pinch, coil, and slab, and progress to basic wheel-throwing and trimming. Others choose to focus on wheel-throwing, trimming, altering and glazing throughout the entire 6 sessions. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have put a limit on the # of students per class and more tight guidelines on class start and end times.  As well, we are requesting that new students choose their learning path prior to starting so we can better teach from a distance.  Please call us to discuss options and start dates prior to coming in to a class.

All returning potters may select their own projects and work at their own pace, with guidance from our instructors as needed to further develop their skills.

Adult fees are $150.00 for the initial 6 sessions, with a 10% reduction to $135.00 for any returning students. Teen(13-17) fee is $120.00.  Clay can be purchased for $40.00 for 25 lbs/$20.00 for 12 lbs (1/2 bag).  All other materials (glaze, underglaze, 2 firings and use of equipment and tools) is included in the 6 week session cost.

KIDS CLAY

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to feasibly and safely teach school-agers this summer until further notice.

This pottery class is for children aged 6-12.  It is similar to our adult & teen classes, but with projects and techniques geared toward younger children.  Each class lasts 2 hours, and the session runs for four weeks. The Kids class fee is $80.00 for the four week session, however all tools and materials (including clay) are included with this fee.

HOME SCHOOL

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to feasibly and safely teach school-agers this summer until further notice.

Our homeschool pottery classes offer elementary aged thru middle school students a chance to get artistic with clay.  If requested, we can offer a once per week 1 1/2 hour class that any homeschooled student can attend if more than 2 in attendance and we also offer special group homeschool classes.  Call us for more details on availability and pricing.

GROUP EVENTS

We will gladly host any type of group pottery parties from birthday parties, girl or boy scout outings, ladies night out, couples class, etc.  Please contact us to discuss availability and pricing.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not currently hosting group events at this time.  Feel free to call to discuss possible future events.

    My kids gave me an experience gift of 6 classes, to which I ended up adding several sessions to finish up projects. Mark and Amy are excellent instructors – creative, talented, helpful, kind, and unintimidating – teaching at the level and pace needed, with endless independent project options. The studio is well-equipped with tools, supplies, and finishes.
    It is rewarding to empty my dishwasher and put 11 clean pieces of pottery in the cupboard to use again!
