Pottery Classes and Workshops

Potter's Wheel

Sorry!  Classes for Jan - Mar have been cancelled.  My doc says my shoulders need a rest!

 

Watch for 2020 — it all starts again in March!

I’ve had lots of requests for pottery lessons in the last few weeks, and everyone is excited for Spring … if you are interested please email me, tell me your pottery experience, where you live, and whether you are interested in hand-building or throwing on the wheel.  Previous students will be given priority, but we always have people dropping out at the last minute so it’s best to get your name on the waiting list as soon as you can.  It’s first come first served … 

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.  Email me and get on the waiting list now — susan@potterystudiio.ca  Class sizes are limited to only 3 for throwing, and 4 for hand-building, so they fill up fast!

 

You will find Workshops on the Events Page — and we have some special ones for the summer in 2020!

 

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 big bowls, and finish off with slab work (serving trays, soap dishes, etc.)  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?

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, but you are welcome to bring your own or purchase some from me.
