We are very happy to welcome back longtime Guild faculty member Mike Bennett!


Students will find a relaxed atmosphere where the only limitation will be our imaginations! We will hand-build, wheel-throw, and sculpt based on each person’s desire. On the last evening, we will fire our finished pieces outdoors in the darkness with a glowing kiln & pottery providing the magic.

All experience levels welcome, & beginners are encouraged to take this class. Ages 10+



What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?


Class time will be spent designing and creating our projects. Most students will need to work outside of class to complete their projects, depending on the complexity of the design.


What can I expect to create?


Participants can expect to make up to three finished pieces (or possibly more), using hand building, wheel throwing, and sculptural techniques.


What should I bring to class?


All ceramic supplies will be provided. Please wear old clothes or bring a shop apron.
