I am so very excited to be opening Twisted Clay and broaden the reach of the wheel instruction that has for the last three years been limited to my small studio behind my home in Grapevine. This time was dedicated as a test to see if both I would enjoy teaching pottery and if there was a market for this service. To my delight, I discovered that I both love teaching pottery to hobbyists and there are more people interested than I had space for.
Since clay is not a one and done type hobby, but rather something you come back to week after week to learn how to control this humble material, I found that my students have stayed with me month after month in order to continue to grow as a potter. Another thing I have found is that the community that is built by working in clay together is just as lovely as working with the material itself.
I hope you will join us as we build this new community of potters in Grapevine, TX!
Classes will take place in six week increments. During this time we will make our way through the pottery process which includes: throwing on the wheel, trimming and glazing. The first five weeks, we will focus on making work and the final week we will all glaze together. All classes, except the teenager class, are for 18 and older. The teen class is for 13-18 year old kids. Currently we do not offer any classes for young children.
Weekly pottery classes will meet at the same time each week and last 2.5 hours. Class times as follows:
