Wheel throwing classes at Art House!!!

They start next Monday. Have you signed up? My classes have been reformatted to 6 weeks rather than 5. I am very excited about this because I feel the students will be able to get a lot more work and one on one time throughout the session. Its a great class that is always a mix of new students and some regulars. Try your hand at making cups, bowls and plates. Intermediate to advanced students can work on lidded vessels, vases and teapots.

Art House's site for all of the info. Contact them to sign up.

For any specific class content questions feel free to drop me a line at
