INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED POTTERS
Students who have completed a beginners class, or feel they have the skills to work with minimal supervision will be considered an intermediate student.
Class times will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:30-5:00 pm and 6:00 pm -8:30 pm and Wednesdays at 11:00-1:30 pm. Cost will be the same as the beginners classes if all materials, clay, glazes and tools are supplied by the studio. Students who wish to purchase their own clay and/or glaze will receive a discount. Clays and glazes must be approved before using to ensure kiln “disasters” are minimized.
Students who can work independently and need little to no supervision or instruction will be considered Advanced Potters. The studio will be available for use during open studio times and during intermediate class time with Neisha’s approval. Cost will vary depending upon the types and amount of materials and kiln time needed and will be negotiated on an individual basis. Please be aware that our kilns are “community kilns”. If you are a “production potter” you will need to arrange kiln time with Neish and beginner and intermediate students will have priority.
For information on Intermediate and Advanced Classes please contact Neisha at 417-880-3531

“TRY IT” POTTERY CLASS
“Try It” is a one-time 2-hour session and is exactly what it says. You get an introduction to wheel throwing …then you try it. If you are considering signing up for a 4-week class, a “Try It” class will give you a bit of a head start. We provide the clay and tools. The only thing you need to do is wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.
You can take a class solo, or it’s a fun activity to do together for couples, a family or small groups.
Please note: “Try It” class does not included finished pottery. You will have the option of coming in for a second class to glaze your pieces for an additional $10. If you would like for us to glaze them an additional fee of $5 per pieces will be applied at time of pick up.
