No experience is necessary for our semi-private, introductory hand building workshops and there is no limit to the number of pieces you can make in the two hour class. However, paid reservations are required one week ahead to reserve your space on weekends 1:00 - 3:00 pm or 3:00 - 5:00pm. Pieces left to be glazed and fired by the studio can be picked up in a month. Or, return to our Follow-up Workshop on Glazing to learn to glaze your own pieces.
