In The News

Our studio offers a comfortable environment of inspiring artists and instructors, with classes and private instruction that integrate primary design principles within the framework of the ceramics medium.


We offer 6-week and 12-week hand-building and wheel-throwing courses for beginners through advanced students, as well as private sessions in all areas. Adults can also join us for our Wheels and Wine evenings as well as other special events.


In the ceramics studio our focus is always on creativity in a safe, judgement-free environment. All of our clay is non-toxic and our glazes have been leach-tested and are food safe. Clearly stated instructions and guidelines are emphasized to help students continually advance their work. Appropriate control of each process is required prior to advancing to the next level class.


Our ‘Teaching Through Success’ methodology combines teaching of essential skills with close attention to student progress and understanding. Positive creative experiences ensure that students rarely want to leave the studio when classes end!


Advanced students may choose to join us as Studio Members who have full access to the studio during all Open Studio Hours*. (Will resume once deemed appropriate re Covid)
