Keeping immune systems high and boosting endorphin/ serotonin levels while in a state of emergency are key. This workshop is an effort to encourage people to go for social distance walks and to bring back found items from nature. Those found items will be used to either add texture or otherwise alter a slab dish. Please make sure to WASH your item well and sanitize it immediately upon arriving home.

Objective: Get people’s lungs cleaned, boost immune system, make some funky pots!

Materials: Clay, water container, plastic, form to use as a mold, wire tool (floss will work), rolling pin/ rounded dowel (optional), old shirt (optional), cut up dish sponge (optional), objects from nature including rocks, leaves, bark, insects (!), flowers, or whatever inspires you!

Feet of Clay offers classes for adults, teens and children. These include:

Adult Classes

If you are interested in our 8 week adult classes, please add yourself to the waiting lists below.  This will ensure your place as we email folks in order of their interest.

Rather than letting the space open up to the public for first come/first serve, we invite people who have been on the waiting lists the longest to join.  Typical waiting times for night and Saturday classes are at least 1 year.  Weekday daytime classes less than 4 month waiting time.  The Monday and Tuesday night class rarely has space.  Please add yourself to the waiting list every session in order to be kept on our email waiting lists.

ADULT CLASS WAITING LISTS

_________________________________________________________

Adult classes run for multiple sessions and usually are 8-12 weeks long. The classes are sold in a set, and you come to the class the same day and time every week. They include group instruction, clay, glazes, and firing.  (However, the intermediate class does not include clay, but is available from the studio for $18 per 25 lb bag of white or brown stoneware; $23 for porcelain.). The class fee covers 3 hours of instruction per week and all materials, but no open studio time. 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.

Please note that all classes are non-refundable after two weeks before the start date. There is a $10 cancellation fee for cancelled classes before the two week start date.  Classes are limited to 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.

Cost:  $300 for an 8-week class

Private Classes

Feet of Clay instructor Jenn Wyman now offers private class sessions for groups of 6 – 8 people on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Email Jenn at info@feetofclaypottery.com to schedule a class.

The fee for an 8 person class for 2.5 hours, all materials, instructor, and firing included is $380.

Clay Sampler – (2 Friday nights for all ages)

Thanks to your feedback about our Friday Night classes, Feet of Clay has added a short-session class where students can start and finish their pieces through the glazing process.  The Clay Sampler class is two sessions long.  Wheelthrowing will be taught on the first evening, and glazing on the second.  The class includes the price of all materials, plus the cost of firing up to two pieces. This is an all ages class and is a wonderful community activity. There are no make-up classes for the clay sampler classes.

Your pieces can be picked up after 2 weeks time, during our normal class hours.  You will be notified when the pieces are ready with a reminder of our class times.  Our normal class hours are Monday-Thursday evenings from 7-10pm, as well as Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10am-1pm, holidays excluded.  Feet of Clay will keep your pieces for 2 months.

Keep in mind this class is non-refundable after two weeks before the start date.
