2016 - 2017 Season
The Pottery is open for its 10th season with Open Studio and Private Lessons.
The Studio is open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 - 2pm.
The Pottery has the equipment, materials and instruction you need to learn to throw on a potters wheel; discover the many methods of hand building including with a slab roller or extruder; use a vast array of decorative techniques; experiment with different clay bodies and glazes. We invite you to try your hands in clay. This ancient material we work with is responsive, forgiving, suggestive, healing, playful. Surprise yourself with what you can create with a lump of clay. Join us at our outdoor studio and see.
