6-week Adult Classes | Registration for the November session opens at noon on October 1st!
This program is a series of 6 classes that happen over the course of 6 consecutive weeks. Registration for all 6-week classes close one week prior to each session start date. Find more info about session dates here. A $10 late fee will be added for all registrations after this date. Contact the office for late registration.
WE ARE STILL REQUIRING EVERYONE TO WEAR A MASK INSIDE DURING CLASSES - BOTH STUDENTS AND INSTRUCTORS. WE ARE REVIEWING THE POLICY EVERY MONTH, AND STUDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED ASAP IF SOMETHING CHANGES.
General Class information
Each class meets for 2.5 hours each week for 6 weeks. Additional open studio time is available to students enrolled in a 6-week class. The class fee includes 25 lbs of clay, glaze, and 2 firings. Additional clay may be purchased separately by contacting the instructor. Register here. (If all classes are full, please join the waitlist! It lets us know if we would have enough interest to add another class!)
This course is focused on the basic skills and techniques of throwing forms on a pottery wheel and developing an awareness of form. The class covers fundamental techniques of throwing bowls, cylindrical shapes and plates. Demonstrations lead students through throwing these basic forms and basic glazing techniques. No prerequisites.
Mixed Level Wheel-throwing
This class is an opportunity for experienced clay students to get critical feedback on their work. A willingness to accept suggestions and embrace new techniques, philosophies and approaches is recommended. Class time is spent on demonstrations, group discussions and individual feedback. Students are expected to continue their class work outside of the normal class time during available open studio hours throughout the session. The goal of the class is the individual evolution and improvement of each student.
This course will explore skills and classic clay techniques that DO NOT use the wheel. Learn about pinch pots, coils, armatures, and attachments in this class. Projects incorporate single techniques and combinations and will lead students through creating varied forms and glazing techniques. No prerequisites.

Calendar View - September Session
When inclement weather occurs, class cancellations will be decided by the Instructor of the class. If WE cancel any 6-week classes due to weather or COVID-19, they will be made up at a later date. If class is not canceled, but a student feels unsafe traveling, they can stay home, but NO make-up class will be provided. We encourage you to make up any lost time during open studio hours and ask about any material missed during the following class.
Your Instructor will contact you if class is canceled. Please make sure s/he has your correct contact information. If you have any questions about our cancellation policy, please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call us at 573-875-0275.

If you cancel in enough advance before the registration deadline (usually 2 weeks before the session starts), you will receive a full refund. If you would rather, you may be able to switch to a different available class in the same session. No refunds or credits are given after the registration deadline (a week before the class session starts). If a class or workshop is canceled due to COVID-19, a full refund will be given, or you can save the payment for a later class.
