Private Pottery Class

Private Pottery Class​

Our private lessons are offered for all levels ages and can include either a Wheel throwing or a Hand-building class. Private lessons can be arranged for 1 to 20 people.  It’s the perfect plan to enjoy groups of friends, team building activities, and kids school activities.

Pottery Wheel

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 three 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.

Hand-building

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!
