Current Class Schedule:
-Oct/Nov – Oct 26, Nov 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30
- Learn pottery techniques through productively working on the wheel or through hand-built pieces
- Learn new skills or develop and improve skills by explore wheel throwing and hand-building techniques in a fun and relaxing environment
- Personal training time is plentiful due to our small class size (limited to 5 students minimum of 2)
Fees and Supplies: Class price covers class instruction, open studio privileges, use of studio equipment and some studio tools. The studio fires Cone 6 clay and glazes for class. Purchase clay prior to class. Supplies are not included in class fee. It is recommended to buy only two Amaco Potter Choice Cone 6 glazes to start. We will talk about glazes so you can wait on it if you like. Supplies are available locally through ALABAMA ART SUPPLY (Birmingham), Forstall Art Center (Birmingham) and Falcon Art Supply (Montevallo only has clay). Tool kits available online from Amazon, Michael’s, Clay-King, Big Ceramics, and Blick Art Materials.

-On the first night of the class, you will start working with your clay, so bring an old

–Basic set of pottery tools-including a sponge, needle tool, large loop, small loop, knife, rib, and wire tool. Do not buy a bucket.
