What you'll do

We will literally get down to earth, get centered and throw some mud. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty and explore the depth of your creative spirit. Our master potter will demonstrate the mesmerizing process of throwing a basic cylinder on the wheel. Then its your turn to get your hands into the clay and create your own masterpiece. Anything you want to keep will be trimmed, bisque fired, glazed and glaze fired by our master potter's and made available for you to pick up at a later date (3-6 weeks). After you have created your masterpieces, the last 15 minutes of class will be for clean-up. If you want to use all your time creating, for a small fee, the teacher will do the clean-up for you, just ask.

*Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can start on time. Late arrivals disrupt the flow of the demonstration and won't give you the time you will want to create.

*For a private group or team session at a date and time of your choice, please send me a message.
Other things to note
Children are welcome with an adult guarding registered and participating in the same class.

    I booked a private class for my family with 5 adults and 3 kids. There was something for everyone and we all had a great time. The studio is beautiful and it’s great to see all the other professional pieces as inspiration. Kaytea was such a great teacher and she spoke both Mandarin and English which was a real surprise!!! It was great to hear all the pottery terms in both languages.

    Very fun beginning pottery class. The instructor went over very basic skills and was very helpful with getting everyone started on the wheel. This is my 3rd time doing pottery and the only thing I wished was that the instructor had asked if anyone had any questions after her demonstration was over. I’m sure a lot of students had questions but the floor wasn’t open to questions so everyone just went on to throwing their own piece right after the demonstration was over. Overall, the class is very fun and the instructor is very nice and helpful to fixing pieces that needed help. Will come back for more lesson!

    Ann was amazing. She had fun stories for us to engage with and helped us individually when we had troubles. She's also amazing at fixing your mess and making it look a lot better than you even intended. Highly recommend this as a beginner class with Ann for you to get your hands dirty and have fun.
