Beginner Sessions

Join Carmen Allen on Tuesdays or Thursday, or Claire Bubeck on Saturdays for more advanced instruction in hand-building or wheel throwing.

The beginner sessions are offered on a monthly membership basis. We welcome artists of all skill-levels to join!

Price: $150 (4 pack of sessions + $50 Student Tier (0-10lbs) firing + $50 for instruction)

OR $175 per month (4 pack of sessions + $75 Tier 1 (11-26lbs) firing + $50 for instruction)

Supplies included for an extra fee: Clay (price varies), $15 lab fee to have access to our studio glazes and underglazes.

Bring your own clay tools, or purchase a set on the first day. There are some available for use in class, but it’s much easier to have your own set!

Instruction Included: You will get access to our studio space for one 3-hour session every week (4 times a month), and with that access, individualized instruction during each session. These sessions are not the typical structured style you might find in other ceramics classes– what you come in and learn that day is entirely up to you! Carmen is very skilled at hand-building and the wheel, so you can focus on either one if you have a preference. For Saturdays with Claire, she is very passionate about hand-building and excited to dive deeper into those techniques. This beginner membership can turn into a different package, (whenever you feel confident without the individualized instruction piece) and you will still be able to access the studio for four 3-hour studio sessions each month to do independent work at that point.

When: Tuesday 6 – 9pm OR 7 – 10pm, Thursday 6 – 9pm OR 7 – 10pm, Saturday 1 – 4pm

We do recommend a month or so of instructed sessions to make sure you’re comfortable and confident before you move on to a solo membership.
