Designed to Your Interests

The process is easy, but can also be tricky. Moisture level of the clay plays an important role. Care must be given to attach the parts correctly. We focus on giving an understanding of the fundimentals required to make your piece successful. Our pottery classes are loosely structured and follow an open format. This is the simplest way to take into account the students interests. We usually start with slab building using one of our many of hump, slump or press molds. After we explain some of the possibilities, we open the direction up to the student and provide guidence along the way.Clay is a versitile medium to sculpt with. Handbuilding pottery includes many different techniques for manipulating the clay.

Classes are run on an ongoing, rotating basis. You can start at any time as there are no start/end dates. You are free to skip dates if you need to. The class has six sessions, five on building and the last session on glazing. Students also have open studio access during regular studio hours. Class size is very small, usually just one or two people. You may want to do this with a friend.
