What you'll do

With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****

**ALTERNATE TIMES ARE AVAILABLE! MESSAGE ME** CHECK OUT MY OTHER ART EXPERIENCES
I've been teaching art for over 20 years, and I love what I do. I am patient and fun, and enjoy sharing my knowledge of clay. Students tell me that they've always wanted to "throw," and—because of my passion for clay—I am a great teacher. It fills me with joy to see others succeed at something they've never done before.

It was so fun to use a pottery wheel for the first time. Our host was a very patient instructor, and I'm very pleased with the items that we went home with.

Lisa was a great instructor. Really took the time to teach us well and was very patient. She also let us stay a few moments longer to decorate our pottery. That was very nice of her. If you book this experience, make sure you listen to her well! :)

Went with a friend, there are 2 spinning wheels which was convenient for us. Our instructor was very funny and helpful we love her ❤. There is parking on site, it was free for us I think due to Covid (the parking attendant wasnt there) our session was 1 hour, 30 mins for decorating and 30 mins on the wheels. Very nice a friendly experience.

Svetlana was our instructor and was an absolute joy. She made us all feel very comfortable and welcome and she had a great sense of humour. We learned a lot for our first time ever trying pottery and are excited to return to glaze and paint our pieces. I really recommend taking the class if you’re interested in pottery and don’t know where to start. The studio was super cute and intimate, a very inspiring space to create in.

This was a great intro class! We had a great afternoon learning about pottery. The only thing I would add is that there are only two pottery wheels so you have to take turns.
