We offer a variety of options, from private one-time classes to independent access to use the studio on your own:
An experienced teacher for kids & adults, I offer private one-time studio sessions on an on-going, individualized basis. Great if you're in town for a brief time, on your own or with a friend, group, extended family, professional retreat, conference, book club. Groups of one person to about twelve to fourteen people are a good size. A two-hour time frame is good but shorter times can work too.
Available weekdays, weekends, evenings, for ages 8 & up. We find a time & work together in the studio. Fine if you're a total beginner or have some clay experience - either way. During the session we typically work on the potter's wheel. The pieces you make are glazed & fired afterwards, then shipped to you within about a month.
The cost is 75 per hour per person - $65. per hour per person for groups of four or more. Plus tax. This includes all the materials you'll need and provides for glazing, firing, & shipping.
If you're here in town & would like to delve more deeply into the wheel-throwing process, learning more of the steps & getting access to the studio throughout the week - this is a great option.
The weekly class meets Tuesday nights 6:30 - 8:30. The focus is on wheel-throwing - get a first introduction to the process - or deepen & develop your skills if you have experience already. Materials & firing are included. You also get access to the studio to work on your own throughout the week.
Everyone works a little differently, and is drawn toward different projects & kinds of forms – the weekly class takes this into account and helps your work evolve. Instruction & demonstration are individualized - sometimes you need 'help' & sometimes you just need to work - every week is different too.
Rolling registration - the 360. fee gives you six classes to use as you like within a two month period, and you can start anytime.
Note: at the moment, August 2018, we are close to maximum enrollment (8 people). Sign up now & there may be a brief waiting period to begin classes...check with the studio for details.
Open Studio Hours summer 2018
Monday - Saturday 8:30 am - 7pm
Sundays by arrangement
Once you've registered for the weekly class you can drop in during open studio hours throughout the week to work independently.
Always great to send a text when you're planning to drop in for Open Studio to make sure there isn't another class or event scheduled or etc. -
If you have clay experience already & would like to just use the studio for a week - this is an option.
Clay, glaze, firing (cone 10 reduction) included. If you make upwards of about 10 pieces, or pieces upwards of 10", a 75. firing fee can cover this.
If you'll be out of town when your work is completed & unloaded from the kiln - you can arrange for shipping too.
If you've got some clay experience & would like access to workspace - the monthly rate is an option.
As above, clay, glaze, firing, provided - as you scale up or begin to work very prolifically a firing fee can cover this though in general, the studio encourages prolific work & prodigious use of the provided clay. We mix big new batches of our unique local cone 10 stoneware every week, and the more pots you make (especially tall narrow ones!) the sooner we get the kiln filled & fired.
