label $115 - $125 or 4 payments of $28.75 - $31.25

In this class, we will focus on the hand building techniques that include coiling and slab building.

By the end of the class you will have made two to three pieces. You will have your very own coffee/tea mug, brekky bowl or even a plant pot. I am open to any projects you have in mind!

The pieces will be left with me to be fired in the kiln. I will glaze the pieces for you. The final pieces will be ready approximately three to four weeks after the class.

***The class price includes the shipping of the final products to your home.

These classes are designed for students to unwind and have some fun, without looking at their phones! It’s a chance to get messy and be creative without any pressure.

The final result will be different depending on the skill level. We will aim to make a functional piece at the end of each class.

Such a fun workshop. Did it with my partner to create Christmas gifts and my partner and I had so much fun. It was just the two of us instead of a class so it was more one on one. The instructor was so patient as well and you could really tell she was very passionate about what she does. No questions were left unanswered and we thoroughly learned to enjoy working with clay

• Dec 2019

We had a very large group, 18 people which Andrea was able to accomodate for. It was a hot and sweaty day and Andrea also provided buckets of ice, water and ceramic cups for us!

Andrea was an awesome teacher, super friendly and patient with all of us newbies to pottery.

Just about every single person in the team gave feedback saying how much they loved the afternoon with Andrea and the pottery class.

I highly recommend this class and will be recommending it for other team events at my work.

Andrea was so nice and encouraging for us to be creative and to make something we wanted. Attentive but let us worked on our pieces without pressuring or rushing through the 2 hours. Great way to spend a Saturday morning!
