Classes are BYOB, and held at 6:30 p.m. Available class dates are September 16, October 21, October 28, November 18, or November 24. The two-hour classes teach participants how to create various clay pieces and work the wheel to make unique designs. Class sizes range from two to eight students.
Allen Stoneware Gallery
In the studio of Allen Stoneware Gallery, nine pottery wheels stand still, each waiting for a student to throw his or her first project. When pupils pour in, these wheels spin into action. Hands get messy, brows furrow, and vases spin into their intended shapes. After a trip to the kiln and a quick rub to free any accidentally trapped genies, the dishes are ready to be taken home.
This is just one type of class offered at the gallery, where artist Vickie Allen-Shea draws upon 38 years of art-making and art-teaching experience to make the community a little more vibrant. In addition to throwing and sculpting lessons, as well as casual BYOB workshops, her studio serves as a boutique. Shoppers can take home one-of-a-kind dishes and figures, or commission a custom-designed piece made to match their vision.
