This is a place to connect, feel grounded and just enjoy your creative side. It’s nice to see people come in the studio and take a deep breath, “So glad I’m here, today has been rough!” Whether it be a check on your bucket list, art class that cannot be fulfilled in a school setting, or you just really like pottery, our classes are therapeutic, relaxing and fun!

Ongoing Classes With Continuing Students

After students complete the 6 week session they are considered a “continuing student”.  Each Tuesday night they pay a $25 studio fee plus materials used. Clay used on the wheel is $2 a pound, and slab work is $4 a pound, students are only charge for what they keep, not for what they discard to recycle.  Most students know what they want to make, we are there for guidance and honing each students skills.

Excursion for Fun:  "The Pottery Experience"

Make pottery on the wheel with the direction of a professional potter. It's not possible to learn how to throw on the potter's wheel in 1 or 2 hours, so we will help you center, walk you through the steps and give you the chance to experience the wonderful craft of making pottery in a working studio. The fee is $100 an hour or $175 a couple. Each piece you keep is an additional $5. This includes glazes and firings.
