Working with clay is a deeply satisfying creative hobby, but many would-be potters are put off because they don’t know how to get started.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear?
Casual clothes work fine. The clay washes out easily but you can bring an apron if you like.
Do I need tools?
There are basic tool available for you to use. You may also buy a basic pottery tool kit from any of the online pottery supply companies or you can find them at Michaels. If you are buying tools, I recommend Kemper tools PTK.
What should I bring?
An old towel is all you need to bring. You may want to bring something to drink or a snack. There is a refrigerator and microwave available for your use.
If I miss a class, can I make it up?
You can make up missed classes. If you know you are going to miss a class, let us know so we can plan another day for you and let someone use your spot for their make-up day.
What if I am a beginner?
The classes are made up of beginner through advanced students. Having the classes mixed in this way benefits beginners because they observe, question, and learn from others who have more experience. Everyone gets to share ideas.
