Service Description

*Students MUST be able to center and pull small amounts of clay to qualify for this class* Dive into the specialized world of ceramic artistry with our 5-week intermediate pit-fire pottery course, designed for individuals 18+ who wish to refine their pottery skills. This course focuses on the detailed process of creating smooth vase forms and preparing them for the ancient and exciting method of pit-firing. Under the guidance of our experienced instructor, participants will receive personalized attention and support, creating an inspiring environment where creativity thrives and pottery skills are finely tuned. Pit-firing is one of the oldest pottery techniques, where ceramics are placed in a pit in the ground and fired using organic materials like wood and sawdust. This method produces unique and unpredictable surface patterns and colors, making each piece truly one-of-a-kind. Set in the serene ambiance of our nature-themed studio, this program not only nurtures your pottery abilities but also serves as a peaceful escape from daily life. Each student is equipped with up to 25 lbs of clay, ensuring a generous supply of material for practice and exploration. Surrounded by the calming presence of nature, our studio is the perfect sanctuary for those looking to relax, ignite their creative spark, and deepen their engagement with the mesmerizing world of pottery. You’ll be able to keep 3-4 of your finest creations by the end of the sessions. The final session will be a special gathering at the beach, where we will pit-fire our creations together, celebrating the culmination of our journey with the beauty of nature. Preparing for class: Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toe shoes are recommended. Trim your nails, as long nails can interfere with the pottery process. Bring your own apron. Class fees cover everything from instruction to clay, glaze, firing, and use of studio tools. Secure your spot today - space is limited! Don't delay your creative journey.
