All of our ceramics classes are beginner friendly, run 6-8 weeks long, and include clay (up to 25lbs), glazes, and in studio materials. If you have never taken a clay class before, I highly recommend our Thursday night HANDBUILDING BYOB class. It is a great introduction to clay before hopping onto the more challenging skills required for using the wheel. No outside clay and glazes are allowed in our pottery studio. Adult students are welcome to work independently up to 5 additional hours a week during open studio hours. Pottery wheels during open studio hours are first come/first serve, but we ask that you be considerate of other students needs during those times as well. Both Open Studio and Classes are for enrolled students only. Please do not bring kids or other adults into the studio space during those time.
-if you are new to our studio YOU MUST BE PRESENT for the first class. This is for your own success as well as the success of your fellow class mates.
-YOU CAN NOT HAVE LONG NAILS and be successful at the potters wheel. Please make sure to arrive with nails clipped before the first class or else all your work will have holes in it.
You can NOT use the wheel if you are in a handbuilding class, even if you know how to throw. We dont have the capacity to support more wheel work outside of those enrolled in wheel classes.
If you withdraw from a class more than 72 hrs before it begins you will be refunded in full minus a $30 processing fee. If you choose to notify us under 72 hrs from your class start, withdraw within 24 of the first class ending, or you are a new student and miss the first class you will receive a 50% refund(new students have to be able to make it to the first class or they will be removed from the class). After that there will be no refunds on classes.
We do not offer transfers to different classes. To switch classes you must get a refund(minus a $30 processing fee) and then sign up for the new class.
All classes for April are live. Evening wheel classes are almost all sold out! So if you see something you want at a time that works for you, grab it. If you need to change or cancel for any reason you will be charged a $30 processing fee.
