Fired Earth Pottery classes are geared towards small class sizes with individualized instruction. Absolute beginners and experienced potters are all welcome. This 8-week course will be an introduction to hand-building and wheel-thrown ceramics. The class will cover the basics of the pottery process for beginners and allow for the assistance of those who come with experience. In week 7 you will glaze all of your work and in week 8 you will pick up your finished pieces.  


General description of the class:

In this general course for adults, you will learn hand-building techniques, how to use the potter’s wheel, and glazing techniques. Beginners and more advanced students are welcome; the classes are tailored toward individual instruction. The course is taught by Courtney Kaczorowski, Craig Clifford, and Debbie Kupinsky at Fired Earth Pottery.

Open Studio is held from 9:00 – 1:00 on Saturdays. On the first day of class, you can sign up for 2 Saturdays. Open Studio is a time to work independently to develop your skills. There will be an instructor or renter on site for questions. 

COST: $240.00 per 8-week session. This cost includes the first bag of clay, instruction, glazes, and firing. More clay is available for purchase at the studio.

HOW TO SIGN UP: Follow the Schedulicity link available on February 8, 2024. Email Angie at with any questions.

WHAT TO BRING: Items you will want to bring to class include a hand towel, a small 1-gallon pail, and a small set of pottery tools ( including a needle tool, cut-off wire, wood rib, metal rib, sponge, and a trimming tool).
