Pottery Classes and Workshops

Potter's Wheel

 

Residents of TARA!

I will have classes open to people who can actually get here during the winter weather … so I suggest residents of Tara might stand a better chance — so:

January 22 to February 26, 2020

Wednesday afternoons — 12:30 to 3:00 pm — working with the wheel.  All levels of expertise welcome, but expect to be patient when I’m helping another participant if you’ve got experience. 

Wednesday evenings — 6:30 to 9:00 pm — hand-building or continuing wheel (must be experienced enough to work on your own on the wheel with some guidance.)  

Please note:  $50 deposit to hold your space, and your deposit is non-refundable if you cancel your spot any time within 14 days of the start of the class.  There is a $5.00 charge if you cancel before that time, but the rest of your deposit will be refunded.  There will be no cancellation of classes unless there is EXTREME weather, so make sure you live close!

Cost:  $200.00 plus $35.00 for clay (20 lb bag) — 3 students per class ($50 deposit is required to hold your space)

 

You will find Workshops on the Events Page!

 

Classes 2019 are Filled!  Watch for 2020 — it all starts again in March!

Please note — Classes for 2020 will be 8 week sessions.  I have found that 6 weeks is just too short!  The 8 weeks sessions will be $250.00 plus $35 for bags of clay used.  Schedule will be posted in January.  You can email me and get on the waiting list now — susan@potterystudiio.ca

 

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS!

HAND-BUILDING:

What will you do in a beginners hand-building class?  
We will start off with pinch pots to make small bowls, then move onto coiling and larger pieces, and finish off with slab work.  You will end up with finished pieces worthy of gift giving!

What should you wear?
Old clothes.  The clay doesn’t stain and can be washed out, but you’re better off wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty.

What should you bring?
If the weather is sloppy, you’ll need shoes for the studio.  It’s a good idea to bring an old towel, and some people like an apron.  I will provide all of the tools you’ll need to work with the clay.

The most important thing?  CUT YOUR NAILS!

THROWING:

What will you do in a beginners throwing class?  
Most of the time will be dedicated to learning how to center the clay — and from there we will be making cylinders, which we will turn into small serving dishes and cups.  It will take at least 6 weeks to master these simple forms.

What should you wear?
