Event Overview

First we will start out with a tour of our 4,000 square foot pottery studio. Learning the process clay goes through from a block of wet clay to a fully complete glazed piece of art. We will get to view what others have created, what others have done with clay, what the millions of possibilities we can create with clay.


The hands-on experience will start as students sit down with a two-pound piece of clay and start to create. We will show everyone how to create the pieces they want to create. Using textures, carving tools, forms, or just free forming it all. We will be there to instruct everyone how to work with clay, how to bind it together, how to ensure smooth edges and sturdy sides. Others might be interested in sitting at one of our 12 pottery wheels. Where we will teach the art of the potter's wheel. How the clay works while spinning, how to move your hands together to create uniformed pieces, and how to use your body to force the clay into what you want. All participants will walk away with 2-4 pieces that they have created.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

After years and years of working with technology and staring at screens all day, I realized that I needed an escape from it all. I found that in clay. Once your hands are covered in clay and you are creating you cant even look at your screen. I have been working with clay and pottery since I was 12. I realized it was time to move my passion for pottery and teaching and turn it a purpose. That is why I opened Pottery Lane. To teach others the art, to watch others create, and to have a space to open everyone's eyes to the power of creating with clay.
