In one-on-one or one-on-two pottery classes that include supplies and firing, fledgling potters spend an hour learning the ins and outs of throwing a pot on a wheel. Potters return once their works are fired to paint and retrieve their ceramic creations. Classes take place Monday–Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Students in animal mug-making classes spend two hours adding handles, features, and textures to a prethrown, food-safe base. Small class sizes of up to six ensure plenty of attention and keep the provided stencils, stamps, and tools flowing freely among the students. During two-hour yarn bowl-making classes, on the other hand, students stamp, sculpt, and decorate a premade bowl fit to hold knitting supplies. All supplies are included. See the class pages for available days and times.
Classes require multiple visits—one to create the item, another to glaze it, and another to retrieve the item. Customers must finish their piece, including pick-up, within one month of starting.
Clay Owen Studios
At the helm of Clay Owen Studios stands artist Autumn Tetlow, a multifaceted maker who counts painting, pottery, knitting, and crocheting among her specialties. At the studios—named after her grandfather—she puts these crafts on proud display: browsing patrons can snag baby hats, toys, and sweaters or make plans to decorate home surfaces with prints or ceramics sculptures of Autumn’s high-school economics teacher.
Not content to merely hold these talents on her own, Autumn also invites guests in for a variety of classes for adults and children. During summer and winter classes, students can learn how to craft their own stained glass, jewelry, or pottery—all while utilizing the multitude of art supplies on-site including eight pottery wheels, two kilns, and artist work tables. Students interested in bringing their own project ideas to life can also visit the studio during their open studio time.
