Mondaes' Intro To Pottery classes are the best way to get your hands in the clay and on the wheel to find out if you love being a potter! Bring a little experience or none at all, and you'll create stoneware vessels each week by:
- Learning or refreshing how to center clay on the wheel in Week 1
- How to trim, finish, and prepare pots for their first firing in Week 2
- Glazing bisque fired pots in prep for their 2nd firing in Week 3
- Finishing additional pots and advancing basic skills in Week 4
Pro-potters Pam Main and David Zink create an easy-going, welcoming atmosphere for all skill levels, and Mondaes students follow suit in this encouraging environment.
Your first class includes a studio orientation that will explain how to utilize unlimited open studio time, so make sure you can attend the first class. Ages 12 + are welcome to take Intro to Pottery up to 3 months consecutively before advancing to Step 2 Pottery Class.
FEE: $108 ($118 May 2023 forward) covers unlimited practice clay, wheel & tool use with unlimited studio time during all open hours, and 4 class sessions. Intro students may choose to keep and glaze up to 10 pots with no size limit, and only pay one fee for both firings over 10 (1/2 off the non-student rate). Most Intro Students do not throw and finish more than 10 pots per month.
CLASS TIME: This class is offered on Weds., 6-8pm, Thurs. 1-3pm, or Fri. 6-8pm. Please enroll in the session you can attend all 4 classes in (all Wed., Thurs, or Fri). Students have 2 weeks following their paid session to finish pieces they wish to keep.
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner through intermediate. No prior experience required. Students who need a refresher or haven’t thrown in a while are required to take Intro to Pottery before registering for Step 2 Pottery. See “Skill Level” required for Step 2 Class.
CLASS FILLS QUICKLY AND IS LIMITED TO 12 STUDENTS PER MONTH: Purchase your class registration here, or call Mondaes @ 208-407-3359 to reserve your space.
Class fees may be transferrable but are not refundable. Mondaes reserves the right to cancel any class due to under-booking or in the unlikely case of an instructors absence. If a class is cancelled, you will be notified by a staff member via email/phone and offered a space in the next available class or a refund.
