Hand-Building With Clay:

6 week course.  2 ½ hours/week.  Up to 8 students in each class. This class is for students 18 years of age and up. 

In this course, students learn and practice techniques of hand-building including coil, slab, pinch and combined forms. This class is suitable for both beginner and more experienced students and will include functional pieces and sculptural techniques. This class will also include instruction on preparing your piece for firing and glazing. Each student will create pieces to take home. 

We provide all the things you’ll need to make the thing: clay, tools, glazes and the kilns to fire your work, along with an expert teacher who will be by your side to help you learn and develop your pottery skills! 

This class includes:

  • Your own 12lb bag of clay
  • Use of student studio tools
  • A space to keep your work
  • Glazing and firing any work you wish to keep is included
  • Daily access to the student classroom for you to drop-in and practice!
  • Student Classroom is available to any student who is currently enrolled in an active class, once your class has begun. Practice hours are from 10am - 5:30pm, 7 days a week except when a class is in session or an event is booked. Please check the weekly schedule posted outside the classroom to be sure the classroom studio is available for practice before coming in. :)

You’ll need to prepare by:

  • Wearing comfortable clothing and shoes which you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Please wear closed toe shoes
  • Bring an apron to preserve your clothes, if you can. (We do sell aprons if you need one)
  • Please leave jewelry and watches at home
  • Please tie your hair back and up if you can
  • Pro tip: shorter fingernails are really helpful

Cancellations or changes: 

Sadly we cannot offer a refund on purchased or missed classes. If your class has not yet begun and is 7 or more days from beginning, we can switch you to another class (if available) or move you to a future course. You may gift the class to someone else to take your place, but you must let us know who your substitute will be at least 7 days prior to the start of the first class.

Please note: Any allowed switch of a class, schedule or person will incur an additional $30 administration fee.

Missing a class:

Should you miss a class for some reason during the course, don’t worry, we understand this happens. Unfortunately we do not provide make-up classes or offer a refund for any missed class. We encourage you to use your free access to the student classroom to do extra practice and catch up.
