Instructor: Teri Prince & Angela Patterson

You will learn the art of “throwing” on the wheel, starting with a basic cylinder. That cylinder can then be altered into many different shapes. We will also cover how to make small bowls. You will learn to trim your pieces and finish them with beautiful glazes. No experience necessary, all levels welcome. By the end you will have a minimum of 10-15 pieces to take home.
Beginner Hand Building Class
6 Weeks | $297 +tax (6 Person Limit)
Instructor: Laila Brandt
Thursdays May 19 – June 23
Explore the possibilities beyond the wheel. Learn how to hand build from slabs of clay. How to manipulate, mold and shape the clay into mugs, bowls, plates or other forms. You will be able to easily add texture and design to your pieces. If you have a found item that would make a great texture, bring it along to try! You will decorate and finish them with beautiful glazes. No experience necessary, all levels welcome. By the end you will have a minimum of 10-15 pieces to take home.
Monday Night Open Studio
For previous Zenfire students
Monday evenings, 6-9pm
This is your time. A time to focus on improvements, practice at the wheel and be part of our clay community. You are all a wealth of tips and tricks, this is a great opportunity to feed off each other’s knowledge and encouragement.
No instruction will be provided. There will be a studio lead to help with any questions about the studio logistics (e.g., which clay to use, when to start cleaning up etc.)
There are spaces available for both wheel and table work. As we only have 6 wheels, please be mindful of which space you book for. Table time would include any decorating time, glazing, handbuilding, etc.
Your weekly fee will include a limited number of pots fired per month, with the option to pay for additional materials and firing.
After your first time signing up, you will receive a welcome email with more details on studio guidelines and open studio expectations.
If you have not been a Zenfire student but have past clay experience, please message me directly to chat about possibilities.
4 Weeks | $197 +tax (6 Person Limit)
