Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

-Thomas Merton

Pottery attracts people of all mindsets and capabilities. There’s something about taking a piece of clay and partnering with it to create a usable or decorative vessel. We offer classes in both wheel thrown and hand built pottery. Try them both! You will walk away with a profound sense of accomplishment and a deeper appreciation for pottery. Our pottery students say the classes make them more focused, patient, calm and confident in their day-to-day lives.
