PLEASE NOTE

Due to the confined studio space and the nature of relatively close contact during a wheel lesson, availability is currently greatly reduced.

In order to maintain the safest environment, no group lessons at this time.

Hopefully as the Covid situation stabilizes, I will open up for new bookings.

If you have a previously purchased lesson please contact me at:

The Firehouse is a unique and intimate studio, where you can relax and enjoy the experience of the potters wheel for the first time, with expert instruction, with a friend, family member or partner.
The craft of the pottery wheel in general is very difficult and can be a little intimating to try for the first time.
I have been teaching the wheel for over 30 years and have found that my private lessons allow for a greater experience. With my one on one instruction, you will succeed first time, creating a simple form and hopefully encouraging you to come back and grow your skills or at least continue to experience the pottery wheel's meditative and therapeutic energy.
No age limit, but call for more details if age is under 8. The pottery wheel does require a certain amount of physical strength, patience, and instructional focus.The tactile experience is great for younger kids but does require much more hands on help.
 
Your introductory, pottery lesson experience is a 2 part process.
1.  An hour of private instruction allows you to create 2 pieces on the pottery wheel.
2. Those pieces must be dried and bisque fired through the kiln one time. Approx 2 weeks after your wheel lesson you will schedule to come in and creatively glaze your pieces,
also about a 1 hour lesson.
Followed by a second kiln firing, your finished pieces will be ready to pick up in about a week.
