ceramics Studio

In our ceramics studio, not only do we make bowls, mugs, figurines, pots, unique sculptures, and more—but we teach you how to make them, too. We have an active studio membership for the use of our facility, as well as a regular schedule of introductory classes in our studio.  Every student that takes a class leaves with several of their own pieces and the skills to build on the next time they find themselves in a studio.

Throwing Studio Night

Monday - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Price: $35
Supply fee: included
Pre-requisite: None
Ages: Kids 12 and up are welcome if signed up with an adult

This open studio time is perfect if you have some experience with the wheel and are looking for a bit more guided practice before embarking in the studio on your own. We'll have all the clay imaginable for you to practice with and will be throwing right alongside you. To keep it low pressure, we won't be keeping any of the pieces made, that way we can keep the focus on throwing practice.

Learn the basics of creating your own ceramic pieces from local ceramists Alicia and Marika. Over a four-week course, we will focus on throwing clay on the wheel, trimming your pieces, and glazing to make your work unique. This class is great for beginners and helpful for those with limited experience working with clay. Completion of Intro to Ceramics will give you access to a Ceramics Membership.

NOTE: We highly recommend taking three weekly sessions in a row with the same instructor, though we can be flexible in some cases. If you need an exception for scheduling purposes, you must email chrisizor@makebhm.com before the start of the first session.
