​​Our most popular as well as most frequently offered class! All beginner pottery classes welcome first timers or students with limited experience throwing pottery on the potter’s wheel. We allow all ages to participate, however children 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Our classes are kept small to only 6 students, so our instructors can provide ample one-on-one time with every participant. Instruction is catered to each student’s individual skill level, making it a great class to take multiple times. Beginner Pottery Classes are all 3 hours long. Students are provided the means to make multiple pieces through hands-on assistance on and off the wheel. At the end of the class students decide which pots they’d like to keep and have fired, then will return to glaze between one and four months later.
