One Time Classes

Series of Classes

These classes are held in a series of two to three classes. They allow me to introduce multiple hand building techniques, as well as teach throwing on the pottery wheel.  In these classes each person will have a turn at the wheel each session. The extra time in these classes also allows participants to make more advanced, multi-step pieces such as lidded vessels and pouring vessels.

"Pottery class was full of many first for me. I enjoyed the hands-on learning about clay, the various techniques, the wheel, how to glaze and the kiln. This was both a relaxing and exhilarating class at times. Katie is a patient, kind, generous teacher who shares her talents and time. Wonderful class!"  October 2020

"The time I spent in Katie’s class was a much-needed reprieve from the stress and restrictions of daily life. Getting the opportunity to play, be creative, and get my hands dirty with my friends was magical. She had everything prepped and ready for us and any idea we had she was completely open to and as excited to try as we were."  August 2020

"I loved the intimate feel of Katie's class.  Sitting in her garage studio with friends, drinking wine and learning all about pottery from Katie was just what I needed during this pandemic. Learning the wheel was my favorite! And it feels good to support friends as well as a small local business." October 2020
