Feet of Clay offers classes for adults, teens and children. These include Adult Classes (8 sessions), Friday night Wheel (All ages, one Friday night only), and Clay Sampler (All ages, 3 sessions, Friday nights), a Teens Class, and a Children’s class (ages 8-12).
Adult classes are $280 (and $265 for day classes), which includes group instruction, clay, glazes, and firing. (However, the intermediate class includes one bag of clay, and additional clay is available from the studio for $18 per 25 lb bag of white or brown stoneware; $23 for porcelain.). The All Levels classes 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.
The Kids and Teens classes include all materials, firing and supplies. We keep the Kids and Teens classes very affordable for parents, and the price varies by how many weeks the class is.
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.
