Our private classes are tailored to offer a personalized learning experience for your group. Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, our classes are open to students of all levels. We offer two types of private classes: Wheel Throwing and Hand-building.

Hand-Building:

The hand-building class is 2 hours long and introduces you to working with clay using your hands. This approach is ideal for getting familiar with clay through simple tools and techniques like coiling and pinching. At the end of the class, you can keep your best piece, which we will fire and glaze for you. Your finished work will be ready for pick-up 5-6 weeks after the class.

Wheel Throwing:

Our private wheel throwing class lasts 2 hours and provides an introduction to working on the pottery wheel. You'll learn essential skills needed to create a small cup or bowl. At the end of the class, you can choose your best piece, which we will fire and glaze for you. Your finished work will be ready for pick-up 5-6 weeks after the class.
