Pottery Classes

Pottery Classes For Kids

” Every child is an artist. The problem is how to reman an artistonce he grows up.”
Pablo Picasso, painter and Sculptor (1881-1973)

Children age 5 to 16 will learn to create from clay with the three basic methods of hand building:  Coiling, pinching, and slab work.
They will be able to make a great variety of bowls, dishes, containers and sculptural art pieces,while being guided step-by-step through all the processes from making a pot to decorating, glazing and firing. Children will learn throwing pots on the potter’s wheel.

All work goes through two kiln firings;  the second firing will make the pottery safe for food and drink,  as well as use in microwave oven and dishwasher.
We use only health-approved clays and glaze-materials.

Each Class is unique and small in size. Students can focus on growing as individuals with lots of personal attention from instructor. This class is great for kids or adults who have or have not worked with clay before. Students will create fun projects as well as learning hand building, wheel throwing , tile-making and mosaic techniques.

Saturdays – 8:30 am to 10:30 am
Sundays – 12:00 am to 1:30 am

The time and length of each class may be scheduled individually.

Cost  per hour – $25 per a person, $20 every additional student.

All materials and firings included. Everything a young artist will need: clay, glazes, firing, supplies, materials, etc.
