Handbuilding is a quick-start to making great pottery. Each class focuses on different topics, such as making a press-plate (for snacks, soap dish, ring holder) -- or a cylinder form that becomes a cup, a mug, a planter, tooth brush holder, for kitchen utensils, maybe a soap holder. We make hollow forms such as rattles and pumpkins, or floats for your Lily Pond, also fantabulous plates and bowls using glass plate patterns and plaster molds. A wonderful way to learn the basics of handbuilding that your imagination will take hold of and create new and never-before-seen wonders!, HAPPY HOUR CLASS: BEGINNER/JUST FOR FUN
Friday Evening 5:30 to 7:30PM
The same as the handbuilding class above, but also with snacks and cheap wine. A great 'date night' or for a women's group, a birthday party, or when out-of-town guests visit.

We also teach a three-week studio skills class, and a six-week wheel throwing class. Either class will prepare you to become an independent creator in Open Studio.
