"In 1998, I built my first kiln & started Green River Pottery. Running the studio and gallery have been my full-time occupation (and then some) ever since. I’ve always had a gallery space located where my studio is, and I sell much of my work from here."
CLASSES: A 2 hour time frame usually works well. Age range: teens & adults. Classes are scheduled for individuals & small groups on an on-going basis. Many students have some experience with clay and may also have their own studio space - beginners are welcome though! We can cover wheel-throwing techniques; hand-building; glazing; glaze formulation; reduction firing; etc.
RATES: $75. per person per hour; $65. per person per hour for groups of more than one. Plus tax and a $20. per person studio fee. This includes all the materials you’ll need, and provides for glazing, firing, & shipping of your finished pieces.
