Pottery classes are perfect for date nights, fulfilling bucket lists, or if you’re looking to pick up a new hobby. Either way, I will guide you in practicing this ancient and legendary medium, connecting you to the history of humanity stretching back over 25,000 years! You are guaranteed to have a fantastic time creating a memorable experience with pottery classes at GPP!
Group pottery classes
Group classes consists of four (3) hour long classes. The maximum number of students is five, allowing for a substantial amount of one on one time. Beginners will grasp the basics and challenge themselves with a variety of techniques. More advanced students will have the opportunity to find their unique style while reinforcing and perfecting the basic techniques. Below is a glimpse of what may be covered in each class:
- 1: The basics of forming the clay and throwing cups
- 2: Throwing bowls and making handles
- 3: Trimming bowls
- 4: The art of glazing
This is a great way to get one on one time without paying private lesson costs. What a deal!
Private pottery classes
Typically, private pottery classes are one hour long and are available for up to two people per lesson. For those new to the wheel, I recommend scheduling two lessons, one to work on the wheel and a second to glaze your surfaces.
At GPP, we will meet you at your level. Beginners will find their lessons geared towards learning the basics of the pottery wheel and how to throw bowls and small vases. More advanced students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves to pursue pieces of interest with the help of my guidance.
One person: $54/hour
Two People: $79/hour(includes both students)
*When booking multiple Private lessons, please note that it will take at least three weeks, between lessons, for your pottery to dry
Open studio is now available to students who have skills to work independently on the pottery wheel. With open studio you can focus on tackling more clay, fine tune your techniques, glaze, or simply unwind from a long week. The options are endless! Since open studio is only offered to students who can work independently, please contact GPP to make sure you qualify before signing up. Open studio slots are limited, and quantities vary throughout the week. Garret will have an up to date schedule to help you coordinate a time that is convenient for you.
