We offer two class styles: multi-week classes from 3-8 weeks—both wheel and handbuilding—so you can master the craft, improve your skills, and be on your way to an independent practise. And we have single day classes where you can try your hand at the wheel or pop in and handbuild a mug, a vase or other functional wares.

Why not try both?


Wheel Classes 

Learn the fundamentals of throwing pottery on the wheel—from centering a lump of clay to pulling and shaping your vessels, to footing and glazing your lovely creations.

NEXT 3-week session starts June 15

Handbuilding Classes 

You’ll learn all the classic pottery techniques— slab, coil and pinching—from which you can make virtually anything.
