Have you ever wanted to 'throw a pot' - that is, use a potter's wheel? This extremely popular beginner's class will cover hand building techniques, forming on the potter’s wheel, surface decoration and treatments. Make functional handcrafted products to use and enjoy.

Material costs ($50) are included in the fee.

NO CLASS 4/19/22.

Note: People who have never taken a pottery class will have preference until March 15. Experienced potter's names will be entered into a lottery for any spaces left remaining. Please note that the materials fee for experienced potters will be $100, not $50. Experienced potters should call or email us to be on the 'lottery list'. Only beginners should sign up via the website.
