Join our Pottery 101 course designed for busy professionals with flexible scheduling! Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, Pottery on the Go (POG) is perfect for learning new skills, creating on the wheel or hand-building, and completing projects in a fun and supportive environment. My cozy home studio offers personalized attention and flexible scheduling to fit your busy lifestyle. We'll cover various topics including clay types, preparation, throwing, hand-building, decorating, and glazing. We can also work on your projects - gift sets, flower pots, plates, vases, candleholders, just remember to gather inspiration on that Pinterest board! Don't worry about unfinished work - we'll keep it safe until your next visit! For more details go to booking!

wheel-throwing workshop

Join us for a hands-on pottery workshop for two, where you can make your own heart-shaped mugs on a pottery wheel. Anna, our experienced instructor, will be there to demonstrate and guide you throughout the process. You don't need any prior experience, just a willingness to get your hands dirty and have fun! Once you're done, we'll trim and glaze your mugs in one of the glazes of your choice. Come and enjoy a unique, personalized experience!

This workshop is for the absolute beginners! 

I look forward to creating together!

3. Chawan-Express

Create your version of a hand built Chawan - Japanese teacup. This fun workshop  allows you not not only build, but also decorate it with underglazes and decals.

When you finish the teacup, it will stay in the studio to dry, get glazed and to survive a toasty 2200 F firing!

4. Whimsical Tea cups

Build a teacup from a slab of clay, decorate it, and add a handle! Those cute cups are the best project for beginners!
