Private Pottery Lessons




By Reservation Only

About the Class

Available by Reservation Only

Reservations must be made at least one week in advance

Supply Fee: A small number of supplies are included in your class fee. If you desire a larger quantity of materials you may use your own or purchase additional from the Arts Center.

Private lessons are designed for anyone wishing to explore clay outside of a group setting. If you are visiting the area and wish to explore pottery, you may sign up, but please be aware that pottery takes several weeks to complete a finished product from scratch. *Single private class reservations are available with the understanding you will not complete your project in one session. You will be asked to choose a glaze color for any pieces created during your session and I will glaze, fire, then place items in a box and set them aside for you to pick up at some point in the future when you come back again this way, we do NOT ship, they must be picked up.
