How to Book A
Custom Clay Class

1. Grab Some Friends

I need 4-6 people to host a clay class. Once we have all the participants, we'll find a time that works for everyone's schedules. Classes are usually around 3 hours long, and typically held in the evening. 

2. Decide What You Want to Make

One of my most popular classes is making a textured mug, however I've also done classes for bowls, pitchers, etc. In my classes I offer all of the stamps I've carved for your use, and provided step-by-step instruction. Having said that, my classes are not prescriptive. I love seeing individual creativity come to life in these classes, and will do my best to help each student create the piece they  envision. 

3. Have a Fantastic Time in Class

My intention is to keep classes a casual, fun and creative learning environment. I'll provide instruction and guidance, but ultimately they are your pieces.  You're welcome to bring snack and drinks. I'll provide as much clay as you need - most participants make 1-2 pieces to keep. 

4. Pick Up Your Pieces 

After you make your pieces in class I'll dry them and send them through the bisque and glaze firings. It usually takes 2-3 weeks. I'll let you know once they're ready and you can pick them up anytime.

Clay Class FAQ

Where Are Classes Held? 

Clay classes are held in my home studio in the North End of Boise. I can comfortably fit up to 6 adults inside. In nicer weather, we can open the garage doors and I can accommodate up to 10 adults. 

How Much Do Classes Cost? 

Classes are $110/person for up to 6 adults for a hand-building class. This includes all materials and equipment, as well as firing and glazes.  Payment is due at the time of class, and I can take cash, check or Venmo. 

Do You Ever Do Kid Classes? 

Yes! Kid clay classes are so much fun! I do them occasionally, typically during school holidays (Fall, Winter, Spring break, etc). If you'd like to schedule a kid class, I would need 6-8 kids, ages 5+. Kid clay classes are $75/kid and last 1.5 hours. 

Will I Get To Try The Pottery Wheel? 

I primarily teach hand building in my classes. This is partly because I only have one pottery wheel, and partly because hand building tends to be a little more "beginner friendly" than the wheel.  If you'd like a class that uses the pottery wheel, please contact me.
