Beginning Pottery Part 2

Registration for April Classes will be sometime in March. Make sure you are signed up on our Mailing List to get class registration announcements. We will send out an email announcing what classes will be available and when registrtaion opens so you can plan accordingly.

10 week Beginning Pottery Part 2 Classes

If you know how to throw a bowl and a cylinder and are ready to move beyond the basics, Beginning Pottery Part 2 is for you.

The class will meet once a week for 2½ hours. Students are encouraged to come to class with a self-proposed project to work on over the course of 10 weeks. The instructor will provide demonstrations of somewhat more advanced ideas based on the work students are interested in making.

Please note: if you have never done pottery before, this is NOT the class for you. Please check out our other Beginning Pottery classes instead.

The cost of class includes a $50 key deposit, which allows students 24 hour access to practice what they are learning. $50 will be refunded at the end of class upon return of the studio key.

Also included in the cost is 25 lbs. of clay and limited glaze firing. Fired Up Studios provide basic tools kits for use during class.

Depending on individual projects, students may find they need more clay or firing space than we provide. Since we do not wish to restrict how much work you can make, we allow you to make as much as you would like for an additional fee. Please note that large items will cost extra to fire.

Class Size: Minimum 4 / Maximum 9
