Classes at Feet of Clay

Gift Certificate



Feet of Clay offers classes for adults, teens and children from 8-12 years old.  The November/December class sessions are held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  We also have one kids class on Tuesday afternoons in November/December, for ages 8-12 years.  The cost of the November/December classes will vary depending on how many sessions each class is.

Our January, March, May, July and September class schedules are more extensive than the November session.  At these time our adult classes are offered Monday through Thursday evenings from 7-10 pm, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10-1pm and Saturdays 10-1pm and 1:30-4:30pm. Our teens class is held Thursday afternoons, and our Kids class (ages 8-12) is held on Tuesday afternoons.

Classes run for 8 weeks and cover basic wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques. They also allow intermediate students the opportunity to pursue their own interests.  We frequently have a mix of beginner and intermediate students in our classes, because so many of our students return to the same class.

NEW!  A Life Sculpting class has just been added.  In this class, students will begin learning to use clay as a means to translate ideas and images into three-dimensional ceramic objects. We will learn the technical elements of working with clay and discover how to sculpt forms from life through observation and drawing. Topics such as structure, surface texture, form, tools, and the various clay processes will be covered. No previous experience is necessary.

Adult classes are $280 (and $265 for day classes), which includes group instruction, one bag of clay (25 pounds), glazes, and firing.  Additional clay is available from the studio for $18 per 25 lb bag of white or brown stoneware; $23 for porcelain.

The Kids and Teens classes include all materials, firing and supplies.  The kids class is $150, and the teens class is $180. See below the adult class schedules for our upcoming Teens schedule.

Please note that all classes are non-refundable after one week before the start date. Classes are limited to 6-8 students to maximize personal attention. We do not offer make up sessions, but if you miss a class, you may register for one independent work session.  Visit our Missed Class Policy page for complete details.
