I bring two wheels plus one or two worktables and all the other tools and supplies needed to your space. We will take turns on the wheel and when not on the wheel I will walk us through the basics of hand-building a cylinder. If you already have experience, let me know and I will meet you at your skill level.
This class is about enjoying the process, not focused on final outcome, as clay is a slow medium and there are many steps to get a piece to completion, therefore a one day session is just the beginning.
At the end of the class you can choose a couple pieces you would love to see finished, select a glaze you like from a few samples and I will bring them to my studio to finish them.
Currently booking dates for February and March 2024.

At Home Classes FAQ
What equipment is provided?
- two wheels
- additional table workspace if needed.
How much space do I need to host a class?
Each wheel work space requires a minimum 4’x3’ area with accessibility into given space.
In addition, you will need:
- area for 3’x4’ work table(s), one per two people
- access to water is essential, a sink is ideal, but filled buckets can also work.
- multi-day classes will need somewhere to store clay pieces between classes.
What do I need to bring?
- clothes that can get dirty
Will my space get dirty/messy?
I encourage everyone to ‘clean as you go’ to keep clay contained and at the end of class we all work together to leave the space as it was. I will do a final mop at the end.
Can we eat, drink, play music?
Yes! Unless you would like participants to wear masks, or if current Covid protocols dictate masks, then we will need to forgo snacks.
How do my clay pieces get finished?
I will bring completed pieces to my studio, do the first (bisque) firing in my kiln, then glaze pieces and fire them again. Longer classes (weekly) have the option to do the glazing yourselves.
What colour will my piece be?
I will bring a selection of 2-3 glazes for you to choose from and I will dip your piece in the chosen glaze.
When can I pick up my finished pottery?
This will vary and will be outlined in each class. Pottery has many stages, drying, first (bisque) firing, glazing, then firing a second time. Therefore pieces being finished to completion with a glaze firing are subject to my studio firing schedule and may not be glaze fired for a few weeks after the end of class. Thanks for your understanding.
