THE PROCESS

Using a potters wheel clay is centered and worked to create a basic cylinder shape.  This shape is then pressed, pulled and open to the desired piece: bowls, plates, pitchers the possibilities are endless.

WHEEL THROWING

With guidance and support you will learn to center clay to form a cylinder which is the basis for other shapes. Classes are small and designed for individual attention so that each student can develop skills in a relaxed environment. You will have guided studio time once a week and plenty of open studio time to practice.

Kiln firing fee at .05 cents per cu.in. (basis kiln availability)

NOTE:  The studio cannot accommodate large pieces nor is it suitable for pottery production. You will have to be selective with the pieces you produce to keep them within the limits of the firing space included in the fee. Please remove all your work and tools at the end of each session. Work  (finished and unfinished) and materials left in the studio after a new session has started will be discarded.  Thank you  for your cooperation.

ONE DAY WORKSHOP
Can't commit to a monthly course at the moment? Take a one day workshop. These workshops allow you to try the potters wheel for the first time. No experience needed, just a fun and open mind.
Workshops run for 2 hours, $90 per person. Fee includes instruction at the wheel, clay, and use of studio tools. You also get to keep one of your creations which I trim, glaze and fire for you. All this as part of the $90 fee. Maximum 4 people per workshop.
Workshops are private one day classes where you will try our hand at centering clay. If you want to keep 2 additional pieces that you make during your visit, there is an additional $45 fee. This additional fee covers trimming, glazing (choose two colors) and two firings. A process that takes 3-4 weeks to complete.
Workshops can only be taken once. If you are interested in taking more classes please sign up for a 4 week course.
