Due to the restrictions of social distancing, we have canceled our classes for the remainder of 2020. We currently do not know when classes will resume. We do not want to scheudle classes only to cancel them again, so we may be waiting until a until a vaccine is easily available for the general public. The class schedules will be posted when we can safely resume our classes.
The goal of our classes is to give you an introduction to pottery. We want you to learn what it takes to throw a pot, but it's just as important to us that you have a good experience.
We have a spacious and well-lit classroom. You will have your own shelf on which to store your tools and work. We provide the tools, buckets, and towels you need for the class. We also have open studio time during our office hours so you can come in and practice what you learned in your class.
The following is a list of the classes and activities we offer.
- Clay Date (2 hours)
- Beginning Pottery (8 weeks)
- Intermediate Throwing (8 weeks)
- Intermediate: Altered Forms & Surface Design (8 weeks)
While we don't do specialty classes or workshops or childrens classes, but many local art centers do. We have provided the links below to help you find the what's available.
