I’m told that the weather can be wicked here on the Bruce during the winter … keep that in mind when registering for these classes. Might be better suited to those who live close!

What will you do in a beginners 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.
Beginners classes are limited to 4 students. That’s all we have room for!
To register email email@example.com or call 905-753-2731 (cell phone, still 905 in spite of being in a 519 area!).
You can pay by etransfer or drop off a cheque/cash.
Saturday Mornings, January 19 to February 23, 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
Intermediate/Advanced students can work on the wheel or continue on with more complicated hand-building. This class is limited to 4 participants. You can bring your own tools, or use mine, but you have to use the clay sold through my studio and our glazes or glazes that have been approved for my kiln. It is not a beginners class — you should know how to centre and throw a good cylinder.
There will be space for 2 throwers and 2 hand-builders.
Cost: $195.00 plus $35.00 for clay (20 lb bag) (a $50 deposit is required to hold your space)
