Our classes are designed for all levels! We'll give you the basic skills and knowledge to make all sorts of functional pots. Typically, students take the intro class more than once to get comfortable with the process of making pottery. Our teaching method is hands-on to the step by step process of making pottery.
The goal of our classes is to give you an introduction to the art of pottery and the ability to create functional pottery. We want you to learn what it takes to throw a pot and we want you to have a great experience doing it!
