When does your next session start?
We do not have defined quarterly or class session start times. We offer classes year round, except on holidays or other scheduled events. We only ask that if you are new to pottery, you call or email with a date based on the day of the week that you would like to attend. We will make sure that you have a one-on-one experience with an instructor for the first few weeks. As you gain experience, you will work independently and at your own pace with instructors present to answer any questions you may have.
How do I sign up for classes?
To sign up for classes you can contact us via phone at 937-839-2529 (CLAY) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you offer Paint Your Own Pottery classes?
No. We do not offer molds to be painted. In our studio you will learn how to create your own pieces by forming the clay through one of our many options from slab work, extrusion, coil work or wheel throwing. Once the piece is created, you can decorate by slip trailing, underglazing, carving and glazing your final piece. If you are looking for something that allows you to enjoy a one-time or short-term clay experience with family or friends, we have options for you. Please check out our class descriptions.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR CLASS?
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Working with clay can get messy but the clay comes out of fabric without much effort. However, some glazes and other materials may not, so don’t wear anything that you aren’t willing to part with.
We also recommend that you remove all rings and bracelets and clip your fingernails as short as possible to avoid multiple problems when throwing clay. Fingernails are all too likely to poke, gouge, rip and scratch wet clay when you are handling it.
