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.


Throughout the year we offer 6-10 week sessions that incorporate hand-building and wheel-throwing  for everyone from beginners through advanced students. We also offer private sessions for individuals and groups, and adults can join us for our occasional ‘Wheels and Wine’ evenings in the summer months.


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.


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!
