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, flexible schedule of classes in our studio.  Every student that takes a class leaves with several of their own pieces.

Learn the basics of ceramics while exploring handbuilding. In this three week course you will use slab building methods to create a lidded box of your own design then explore various surface finishes and glazes to finish your creation.

This class will cover the basics of ceramics by exploring basic terminology and techniques of handbuilding, so it’s ideal for beginners and those with limited experience with clay.


Intermediate Ceramics

Price: $150 (three sessions)
Supply fee: included, up to 15lbs clay
Pre-requisite: Intro to Ceramics

Building on the basics you learned in Intro to Ceramics, continue to explore throwing on the wheel. Students will expand on their wheel throwing skills with various throwing techniques with a focus on lidded vessels, such as jars and composite forms such as tea pots. This class will also introduce different surface decorations and glazing techniques. Students will leave this three week course with multiple pieces of their own creation.

This is an intermediate class that will dive right into more complicated forms, so previous wheel experience is required. We recommend taking Intro to Ceramics to learn the basics of wheel throwing before this class.
