Our Blossom Hill Pottery Lessons are a hands on experience that is fun for all ages. Think of our teachers as your personal trainer. When you arrive your teacher will assess your skill level (don’t worry we love beginners), ascertain your goals and then personalize the lesson plan to meet your needs. In the beginning you can expect one-on-one attention from your instructor.
As you progress, we take the training wheels off and set you loose on this vast playground we call a studio. Setting you loose, however, does not mean leaving you on your own. Weather you are in your class, or here to practice, our goal is to make sure that there is always someone here to help you.
Here is what you can expect from your first six Classes:
Class One: Your first class will include a tour of our studio, an introduction to the process of making pottery and your first lesson on the potter’s wheel.
Class Two: When you arrive for you second class the pots you threw during the first class will be leather hard. We will show you how to trim a foot on your leather hard pots and you should have plenty of time to throw a few more pots.
Class Three: The pots you threw and trimmed the first two weeks will be ready for the first firing (called bisques firing). You will have time to throw and trim more pots.
Class Four: Your first set of pots will be out of the bisque firing and ready to glaze. You will receive a glazing lesson. You will also have some pots to trim.
Class Five: Your first set of pots will be glaze fired and ready to take home. At this time you will have to decide whether or not you want to take more lessons. If you do plan to take more lessons, it’s time to sit down at the potter’s wheel and throw more pots. If not, we’ll help you start wrapping everything up so that all of your work gets completed.
Class Six: It’s time to get all of the pots you have made glazed. If this is your last class, we’ll give you a call when your pots glaze fired so that you can take them home. If you’re continuing on, another throwing lesson is in order.
What happens if I continue with more Pottery Lessons? Your instructor will keep teaching you what you want to learn. We can continue to show you how to throw more forms on the wheel or introduce you to the world of hand built ceramics.
Pottery Classes are offered in day and evening sessions Monday through Saturday. Enrollment is always open making it possible for you to join us at any time.
