Artist Timmy Hord, who has created art in a variety of media since the mid 1970s, extends her studio and artistic savvy to teach students of varying experience levels how to sculpt their own pottery. In private two-student classes, participants age 12 and older manipulate mounds of clay spinning on pottery wheels as they learn to forge round pieces with elegant uniformity. Larger groups use the 2–3 hour lesson to knead hand-built masterpieces, creating unique trinkets to display on a home mantel or to sneak into the MoMA. Although Hord’s Introduction to Clay classes are structured for beginners, the clay-shaper can also tailor the session to suit more experienced sculptors. After class, an authentic kiln fires each creation to glazed perfection, and students can pick up their terra cotta treasures at a later date or send for them via a very careful homing pigeon.

Really fun. Timmy was so nice. Very patient and helpful. We got the four person private lesson and with a little guidance from Timmy, we all managed to get make several "keepers"! Package includes the option to come back and finish your work or she will trim, glaze, and fire it for you.
