private lessons, open studio, apprenticeships
PRIVATE LESSONS are a great way to get your feet wet with clay. In three to four classes I can get you up and running and making a variety of forms. We start with the basics. Coil building and pinch pots. Lessons include clay, use of my studio and tools and firing. I charge $55/hour. We can also set up semi-private lessons if you would like a small group setting.
I hold a couple of OPEN STUDIO sessions for experienced students each week. Either 6-9pm or 10am-1pm. I float around the studio time helping people with their different projects. You learn by being around lots of creative energy in a positive and supportive environment. Sometimes I will teach a specific project that you can participate in or just continue with working your own.
Open studio is $25 for a three hour session. You buy my clay for $25 for 25 pounds. I offer many varieties. Firing is $1 an inch. Most people work on large sculptural pieces. We have so much fun working together and enjoying the creative energy that each person provides!
I offer APPRENTICESHIPS for anyone interested in trading studio work hours for use of my studio, materials and learning about what I do. Apprenticeships are 2-6 work hours per week. Clay experience is a must. Work schedule depends on the hours you have available to commit to my studio. Contact me for an interview.
