Private Lessons are 3 hours each, and usually once a week for 3 to 8 weeks.

A true Introduction to Wheel Thrown Pottery session is 8 classes. This allows an introduction to all the steps in forming and finishing the basic shapes of pottery: mugs, bowls and plates. You will have time develop the basic skills of throwing, trimming, slip decorating and glazing. You will complete 8-15 pieces, growing and building your skills each week!

The bare minimum to try is 3-class mini session. You will have the opportunity to try each of the 3 major stages of pottery making: class 1: wheel throwing, class 2: trimming and class 3: decorating. You will practice the basic skills and create simple shapes like cups and bowls. You will likely create 3-5 pieces.

Classes usually occur once a week on the same day and time. That allows time for drying and firing and lets you work on the pieces at each of the major stages: throwing, trimming and decorating.

I will fire your work in my kilns. You will finish everything you make in the session and it will be safe for food use in the microwave, oven and dishwasher. You will also have a good introduction to the skills and steps involved in handmade pottery. In a Private Lesson students learn and excel quickly, often the very first pieces created are of surprisingly good quality.

The rate for private lessons, with one student, is $50/hour +hst, minimum 3-hour classes, and a minimum 3-class session. You may choose any number of classes in your session. An 8-class session is recommended. This includes all clay, glazes, firings, use of tools…everything you need! 3-class Mini-session: $450+hst=$508.50

8-class True Introduction to Wheel Thrown Pottery Session: $1200+hst=$1356

SEMI-PRIVATE: For 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 $35 per hour, per person for two students, or $30 per hour, per person if there are three students, or $25 per hour, per person if there are four students. (A group class with 5 or 6 students is $20 per hour, per person).
