Our private classes are designed to provide a hands-on experience with clay to students of any level. Each class is 2-hours in length and is customized to fit the level of the student. These classes can be offered as a gift! Private classes are held on a reservation basis. Payment must be made in advance of the class. Class fees are not refundable.
Wheel throwing: This course provides an introduction to working on the pottery wheel. Students will learn the essential skills required to make a small cup or bowl. This is an “experiential” class, meaning the end result is not the primary focus of the class. Students have the option of keeping their best piece, to be trimmed, fired, and glazed by the Atelier Make team. Work will be ready for pick up 3-4 weeks after the class. For beginners the class provides an initial experience. For intermediate and advanced students this class is geared towards perfecting specific skills. If you are looking for a project-based class we recommend the handbuilding option.
