About Courses

Pottery Wheel Course


Learning to use the potter’s wheel takes patience, practice and focus. It is also super-relaxing and rewarding.
If you are a total beginner, we will sit with you for an hour or two of lessons for your first few visits. After that, people typically find their feet a bit and want to work on their own with occasional advice, troubleshooting, demonstrations of new forms, or rescue missions. There are two instructors here who can help you as much as you want. You’ll make a few wobbly small bowls, plates or cups on your first couple of visits, but as you get better control you will begin to create your favorite forms.
For intermediate and advanced potters, we’re here when you need us for technical advice, aesthetic opinions, or learning new forms. We also aren’t shy with challenging you to explore new directions like altering forms, advanced surface treatments, construction of more complex works, etc.

Hand-building Course


Hand-building, or sculpture, is the other way of working with clay. The basic techniques are easier to learn and the range of forms you can produce is much broader.
If you are interested in clay, but aren’t sure the wheel is for you, think about hand-building.
For the beginner, you will be surprised how easy it is to begin making nice functional ware or artworks on your very first day in less than 30 minutes!
