Classes - Adult Catalog Winter 2023: Pottery

Adult pottery classes are open to beginners and intermediates. The curriculum includes hand-building, wheel throwing, glaze application and decorative techniques on high-fired stoneware. Because clay melts at different temperatures, only pots made in our studio with clay supplied by the Pottery may be fired in our kilns.

  • Clay and tools cost extra. 

  • Glaze materials and firing are included in the cost of clay. 

  • All classes meet regardless of holidays, unless otherwise noted.

Several studio hours, called bench times, are offered to students at no extra charge. We have returned to the bench time system we had pre-covid. For newer students please read carefully so you understand what days you will have access to the clay studio. 

Bench times for all students: Tuesdays, Saturdays & Sundays 12:30 - 3:00 p.m.

  • You are allowed to go to any two out of the three offered days. You must sign in to bench time. 

  • There will be unofficial bench times associated with PM1 & PW1. If you are in one of these classes, you may go to the bench time following your class plus one additional separate day. 

  • Saturdays and Sundays you will have the option to stay 1 additional hour with a $5 cash donation to our Scholarship Fund 

Due to precautions against Covid-19, some of our studio procedures and student requirements for registration have changed. Please see class description for full details.
