Clay Treat TraysPRIVATE POTTERY LESSONS

The private and semi-private lessons are designed for learning to throw on the potters wheel, develop skill and complete a small body of work.

My rate for private lessons is $40/hour +hst, minimum 3-hour classes, and a minimum 3-class session. This includes all clay, glazes, firings, use of tools…everything you need!

We do at least three classes, usually once a week because that allows time for drying and firing and lets you work on the pieces at each of the major stages: throwing: which is the act of creating shapes on the potter's wheel, trimming: which is placing the partially hardened shapes upside down on the wheel and carving clay off to refine and finish the shape, and slip decorating: which is painting to complete your design.

I will fire your work in my kilns and complete them with a coating of clear glaze and a second firing.

Over the session, you will complete a small body of work which will be safe for food use. A 3-class session would finish 2-5 pieces of pottery, usually small bowls and cups. An 8-week session would still divide the time equally between the 3 major stages and complete a greater number of pieces, likely 8-12, with more variety of shapes.

You will have a good introduction to the skills and steps involved in handmade pottery. In private and semi-private lessons students learn and excel quickly, often the very first pieces created are of surprisingly good quality.

SEMI-PRIVATE: I have four potter’s wheels and can accommodate up to four students at a time, so if you can gather a group together you can get a bit of a price break, cutting your cost to $30 per hour, per person for two students, or $25 per hour, per person if there are three students, or $20 per hour, per person if there are four students.
