We teach one-day workshops & on-going classes here at the studio. In order to keep track of what we’ve done & who has taught it - time to start keeping a list below
An intermediate wheel class focusing on functional kitchen items - utensil crocks, salt cellars, food prep pieces such as berry colanders and citrus juicers.
Weekly demonstrations will cover handles, spouts, lids, throwing multiples, making alterations, and we will apply our new techniques to a variety of kitchen gadgets. Stretch your imagination & sense of form in this playful, exploratory, class.

Flowerpots & garden pieces on the wheel
In this hands-on Thursday morning workshop, make big outdoor pieces using the potter’s wheel.
