Our core curriculum in ceramics includes 5-week introductory classes in wheel throwing and handbuilding. Students are able to continue their studies in intermediate courses, alongside special topic classes and workshops exploring surface techniques, glazing, raku, mold-making, and more. Private lessons and group workshops/demonstrations are also available.
Open Studio / Studio Passport
Monitored open studio hours are offered approximately 12 hours per week. All students enrolled in courses 5-weeks and longer have access to open studio hours outside of class for the duration of their enrollment. For those with a basic knowledge of ceramics and a wish to work at their own pace, access to open studio hours is available through our studio passport program.
Rent Studio Time
For those looking to explore and expand their personal work independently, daily and monthly rentals are available.
