Join us at Rat City Studios for Weekly Clay Classes.

I am excited to be teaching pottery classes from my studio in White Center/ West Seattle!
Come enjoy a low-key, welcoming setting where you can learn about working with clay. These classes are small, adult, weekly sessions where a demonstration will be given at the beginning of class and then there will be independent work time with guidance offered.

With your class payment you receive access to the studio five days a week during open studio hours and one class per week on Wednesday evenings.  You may practice in the studio for as many hours during the open studio hours as you wish.

Bring your ideas and together we will take the next step toward making them real in clay.  Whether you are interested in wheel throwing or hand building, join in and be excited about working with clay!  Each class is limited to eight people, so you will receive personal instruction and pointers specific to your projects. Each class will have a demo at the beginning of class. The group's interests and projects will help direct topics covered in class. Get ready to build your tool box of tricks, have conversations about making it as an artist, and enjoy working in clay in a small, personalized setting.

The studio operates at cone six electric and this will be the only firing temp/ atmosphere offered. There are six shop glazes available for your use. Glazes or underglazes brought in from outside the studio are encouraged, but must be approved by the studio before use.  Clay must be bought in house. I will stock a cone six JG Porcelain (white clay). The cost of the clay will include firing and glazes costs. Keep in mind that while I will endeavor to fire all work made by members, the classroom is not set up as a production facility. Please join this studio wanting to learn, try new things and grow your creativity.
