What class is right for me?
Wheel I is a six week, true beginner class and requires no previous experience. Wheel I builds a foundation of skills needed to throw pottery as well as introduces basic pottery terminology.
Wheel II is a six week class that builds on the foundations of Wheel I and introduces new techniques for throwing lager vessels, creating sets and working on consistency.
Intro to Wheel is a great place to start if you're not sure if you can commit to six weeks of class. We cover the very basic steps to pottery in a fun and approachable environment.
Q- Classes show as sold out, is there a waiting list?
A- We do not have a waiting list for classes. We send out early access emails to our email newsletter subscribers, signing up for emails is the best way to make sure you snag a spot. If we have a space open unexpectedly we will send out a notification to our email list and registration will be first come first serve.
Q- When will the next classes open for registration?
A- Classes are posted at least 2 weeks in advance of the class start date. Our email list receives an early registration link before classes are posted to the website, so be sure to sign up for our email list via the bottom of our website homepage!
Q- What are the age limits for wheel classes and workshops?
A- We ask that students are at least 12 years of age unless specified in the class description. Students under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult 21+ years of age.
What membership is right for me?
Studio Membership is our all access membership. Members have access to wheels, handbuilding equipment, studio glazes, and other tools and resources you need to continue your journey into pottery! Members also have access to our library of resource books and the expertise of our staff.
Handbuilding Membership gives you access to our handbuilding tables, slab roller, extruder, and studio glazes. If you're not a wheel thrower, this is the perfect way to stay engaged in the community!
Firing and Glazing Membership provides you access to our studio glazes and unlimited firing services. We fire to cone 04 for bisque and cone 6 for glaze. It's perfect for home potters that aren't ready for the commitment of a kiln, but want to stay engaged in the community.
Drop-off Firing Service is perfect if you're a home pottery that is producing a few items at a time. It's great for a busy schedule that can't commit to a stretch of 6 or 12 weeks, just drop work off as you're able and pay by the pound for firing. We get most items though the kiln in 1-2 weeks.
