Introductory Courses

We offer six-week, 2-hour introductory courses in both handbuilding and potter's wheel. In our Introduction to Potter's Wheel courses, you will learn and practice the techniques used to throw, trim and glaze functional ware working on the potter's wheel. Our handbuilding courses cover the basic methods of building ceramic pieces by hand - Slab & Pinch or Coil Techniques.


All introductory courses include additional Student Practice time each week. Basic skills are covered in depth, and online registration is required to attend.


Weekly classes are filled with combinations of beginners and those who have some experience, but it's been a while. For those with experience, we also offer Continuing Potter's Wheel courses as well as studio memberships. If the course you want to take is full this coming session, consider trying the other technique in the meantime. 

For safety precautions we keep our garage door open for air flow. Please dress warmly if the weather is looking chilly.
