Maria’s pottery class is offered to those that are eager to learn new techniques and improving one’s existing skills.  Each student is guided from start to finish on each project with discussions on form and function. Intermediate to advanced levels can enjoy this class with Maria as she discusses and demonstrates pottery forms and their functions.


Pottery forms often follow function; to fit the hand or pour a certain liquid.  In this class, you’re the artist, so form and surface decoration may come first.  Express yourself!  You may decorate the surface with carvings, slips, and glazes to make every piece unique.


Pieces created in class may be fired as part of the class fee. Clay and tools may be purchased as needed. Students need to bring an apron, hand towels, paper towels, notebook, and pencil.
