Ceramics Classes
For kids and adults

I am now offering private ceramics classes by appointment in San Bruno for kids and adults. Get your hands in real clay, learn to create pots and sculptures using the basic skills of handbuilding with coils and slabs, as well as glaze application and decorating with textures. Try the potters wheel (I have two) and take home high-fired, durable and food-safe functional pieces.

Some of the projects you might do include leaf-textured bowl or plate, animal sculpture, pinch pot with lid, coil mug and wheel-thrown bowls, cylinders and plates. Bring your own ideas or let me suggest a fun project for you. The studio is filled with sample projects for inspiration. A ceramics class can be a wonderful way to express and explore creativity and leave your cares behind.


Classes are 2 hours. Instruction, materials and firing are included.

Group handbuilding classes (2-4 people) $60 per class per person

Group throwing classes (2 people) $80 per class per person (ages 10+)

Individual handbuilding classes: $80 per class

Individual throwing classes: $100 per class (ages 10+)

Class length, times and number of classes are flexible.

I am available on weekdays and weekend days, I do not teach at night.

Classes can be ongoing or taken on a one-time basis.

You can usually make and glaze three pieces in a two-hour class.

Projects are usually ready for pickup in about 2-6 weeks, depending on firing schedule.
