Service Description

Topics covered vary depending on the individuals enrolled in the workshop but can include the basics of getting started on the wheel--centering, learning to throw functional forms as well as more advanced topics like altering thrown pots, learning to throw larger pots, developing your own glazes using natural materials in your environment, and so forth. We work with a couple of different stoneware clay bodies we purchase pre-mixed, glaze it raw (i.e. no bisque fire), and single fire in a soda kiln to cone 10 using propane as fuel. ​ In addition, we have a raku kiln for doing some extra firing while waiting for the big kilns to cool at the end of a session. Class sizes are small (we limit the residency to 6 participants) so there is ample opportunity for one-on-one interaction with the instructor(s). Positions are filled first come first serve with deposit. Emphasis is on meeting the individual student at his or her skill/interest level and working from there. ​ The price for two weeks includes room and board and glaze and firing. There is an at cost charge for commercial clay and the school clay. Tuition is $2,500 and includes room and board.
