POTTERY LESSONS

Twisted Clay has reopened its doors with precautions in place.  These precautions include:

  • Masks -We are requiring that anyone participating in or teaching a class wear a mask in studio.   

  • Social Distancing - The studio is currently set up for a socially distanced class with wheels six feet apart from each other.

  • Sanitizing between classes - We are using a bleach solution to wipe down all tables, wheels, touch surfaces and shared tools between every class.

Each session lasts six consecutive weeks.  This next session runs from: 

Monday, July 21st - Friday, August 28th

Enrollment will begin for the general public on Wednesday, July 8th.

 

Class Information

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. In the first five weeks, we will focus on making work, and the final week we will all glaze together.  All classes are for individuals 18 and older.  The teen classes will resume this fall.  The teen classes are for individuals 13-18 years old.  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:

Tuesdays

9am - 11:30am (Beginner 2 Wheel Class)

1:30pm - 4:00pm (Beginner 2 Wheel Class) FULL

Pricing & Other Details

Option One

​Class Fee - $240 per six-week session for weekly classes + cost of tools & clay

    - Beginner Tool Kit Costs - $25 (one time cost)

    - Clay is available for purchase at the price of $15 for 25 lbs of stoneware & $25 for 25 lbs of porcelain.  This usually            lasts a beginner for the full 6-week class.

Once your first session fee is received, your spot will be reserved.  Each class will have room for eight students. 

Options Two

I will also be offering studio memberships.  This is a flat monthly fee that would replace the $240 per session fee for those looking for ongoing classes.  Those rates will be as follows:

    - $169 per month (2-month commitment, 30-day notice required to end after two months has passed)

    - $159 per month (6-month commitment, 30-day notice required to end after six months has passed)​

    - $149 per month (12-month commitment, 30-day notice required to end after one year has passed)   

The membership will come with the following benefits:

     - First option on class schedule when the new session starts

     - Extra wheel time can be booked on the studio App at $20 per 2.5-hour session 

        (Adult members only as I only have one teen class at this time)                                                                                                   - Hand towel will be provided for studio time                                                                 

Please keep in mind that sign-ups are for a specific class time on specific dates.  Having said that, if you give notice 24 hours ahead of time, you will be eligible for one makeup class per six week session.
