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.
Monday nights from 6:30-9:30 pm
Sept 9 - Oct 28 (excluding Thanksgiving)
This class is designed for the beginner. No prior experience with clay is required but those with experience are welcome too! We will go over a variety of techniques, including throwing pottery on the wheel, hand-building, trimming, decoration and glazing. You will learn to make your very own cups, bowls and vases!
7 week session - $345
Thursday nights from 6:30-9:30pm
Sept 12 - Oct 24
Taken a pottery class or 2 before and looking to up your game? This class is designed for people looking to further their skills in clay. I will be going over making larger pieces, fine tuning your throwing technique, how to make pouring vessels and lidded forms as well as advanced decorative techniques. You can still make lots of cups and bowls or work on your own special project!
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.
