6-Week Program Information
August 21st Session:
Choose from our collection of 38 classes- ranging all skill and interest levels.
Classes meet 1 time per week, for 6 consecutive weeks. During the 2.5 hour weekly lesson, the first 30-45 minutes the instructor will give a demonstration, followed by individualized guidance as you create with clay.
Enjoy a hands-on, creative experience that will take you though all the steps needed to create a finished piece. The first weeks you will work with wet clay, followed by learning to trim and shape the semi- dried (leather hard) clay. After the piece has gone through its first kiln firing, you will learn surface decoration methods. Our final class is a glaze session and potluck where we celebrate what we have made and finish glazing the pieces you've made through out your session.
Any introduction class is great for those with no experience or looking to get back into it! If you fall in love and want more, we have a ever expanding curriculum with new advanced classes each session.
$290 for 6 Week Class + Open Studio Time
Includes: first bag of clay, glazes, firing, and open studio hours outside of class. During your session, please come in and create during the week or weekend during our open studio hours.
1618 Pacific Ave.
