I have over 20 years of experience working with clay and I've developed many different skills and techniques during this time. I design my classes to be for beginners, however I am happy to include advanced techniques to those with prior experience working with clay. The focus of the class is learning to make pottery on the wheel, which includes some basic hand-building, finishing and decorative techniques.
Pottery Crash Course - 4 week Class
This class is designed for beginners to get a taste of the pottery making process. In this 4 week session, you will try throwing pottery on the wheel and how to finish and decorate your own clay creations. No experience is necessary!

I teach the classes out of my studio which is located in the Bradshaw Studio Building at 15 Adrian Ave. It's a welcoming environment with lots of natural light, 7 pottery wheels, a slab roller and 3 kilns. There are currently 4 studio artists working here full time.
