Our Classes and Events
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 sessions run 6 weeks in length and include all materials and kiln firings.
If this is your first time, you will need to purchase a basic tool kit. This will be a one time purchase – these tools can be used in any future classes with Zenfire Pottery or any other pottery studio.
Please browse through the calendar to find upcoming classes, events and workshops. If you would like to register, or find out more information, please fill out the registration form below, or contact us on our contact page.
