Pottery classes are perfect for date nights, fulfilling bucket lists, or if you’re looking to pick up a new hobby. Either way, we 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 consist of four (3) hour long classes. The maximum number of students is six, 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. A private pottery wheel lesson, then a follow up glaze lesson.
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. (When scheduling lessons, you may add on the second person while booking)
Per person: $54/hour
*Please allow a minimum of three weeks between private pottery wheel lessons and the follow up glaze lessons.
Open studio is 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 get your link to schedule your OS times.
