Our Classes and Workshops

Find Your Creativity

Shut off all the noise going on in your life

Put away the to-do lists

Set some time just for you!

 

This opens up space in your mind and allows the creativity to flow and have fun!  You don’t need to call yourself a creative person in order to try pottery. There are lots of tools and ideas here for inspiration.

Classes have a small number of students so that you can get the most of your time with us.  Wheel class is limited to 6 people and hand building is limited to 8. This gives an excellent teacher-student ratio for great one on one guidance.  If you have never touched clay or it’s been a while, this is the perfect space for you to start! All class sessions run 6 weeks in length and include all materials, tools and kiln firings.

 

Workshops are one time events where we offer a variety of creative opportunities for you to escape day to day life and join us for a few hours of fun and creativity.

Stay tuned for more information on how to register for upcoming Classes and Workshops.
