Classes Overview

Classes at The Potters' Studio are a great opportunity to hone your craft and learn what it takes to be a successful ceramic artist. The course fee of $290 includes:

  • 8 classes (3 hours each)

  • 4 cubic feet of firing space (that's a lot)

  • 25 pounds of clay

  • A loaner set of tools for your first class (you'll need to bring your own tools after that)

  • A cubby to store your tools and clay

  • Lots of storage racks for your in-process work

  • Lots of free open studio time for you to come in outside of class


Priority registration is given to the current students in a class. Their deadline to re-enroll is class #5 of each 8-class session. 

The number of students opting out of re-enrollment will open up that many spots, initially, to people on each class's notification list. We're limiting the number of people on each notification list to 12 max, and a given notification list is solely tied to a specific class session (e.g., May 2 - July 2). There’s no roll-over of names on a notification list to the following session. 

Should we be unable to fill a class via a notification list, we’ll open up registration through a link on a class page, first-come/first-serve.
