Join us to throw some clay!  Um… throwing clay on a potter’s wheel that is.  Join Instructor Casey O’Connor each Saturday afternoon for 6 weeks as he teaches you several techniques in this fun, challenging and rewarding artform.  If you’ve always wanted to create a vessel, now’s your opportunity to learn from a master. Casey will teach several techniques including pulling, ribbing, centering, and joining or “stacking” sections of your art to achieve amazing results.  You’ll also learn basic glazing practices as well as some hand building techniques.  No experience necessary and all skill levels are welcome!

Each student is allowed to create 6 pieces to be bisque and glaze-fired per six-week session. Additional pieces may be subject to firing fees. Clay is not included and is available at $25 per 25lb bag (any variety).  No outside clay or glaze allowed.

Students to Bring: Apron, old towels and (optional) water bottle. Please wear close-toed shoes. 

You have the opportunity to register for our Open Studio sessions!  See details below.
