Það sem verður gert

With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****

**ALTERNATE TIMES ARE AVAILABLE! MESSAGE ME** CHECK OUT MY OTHER ART EXPERIENCES
I've been teaching art for over 20 years, and I love what I do. I am patient and fun, and enjoy sharing my knowledge of clay. Students tell me that they've always wanted to "throw," and—because of my passion for clay—I am a great teacher. It fills me with joy to see others succeed at something they've never done before.

Svetlana was our instructor and was an absolute joy. She made us all feel very comfortable and welcome and she had a great sense of humour. We learned a lot for our first time ever trying pottery and are excited to return to glaze and paint our pieces. I really recommend taking the class if you’re interested in pottery and don’t know where to start. The studio was super cute and intimate, a very inspiring space to create in.

This was a great intro class! We had a great afternoon learning about pottery. The only thing I would add is that there are only two pottery wheels so you have to take turns.

I understand things happen. I own a children’s entertainment company and we provide art parties. I understand clients can be unreasonable and tiring. What I can’t understand is communication stopping when things are clearly going wrong. We arrived 15 minutes before start time as requested to find parking and get set up. An hour later our artist arrived. No apologies. No explanation other than “had to go back for my keys”. Things happen but as an owner of a company it’s your job to follow up and make things right. Communicate, update, don’t just turn a blind eye. Life happens but abandoning your clients to just wait it out for a few mins that turns in to an hour, and without rectifying a situation is poor management. I think the heart in this company is severely missing. And it has so much potential. The process of making the clay was fine but far too vague. “Make whatever you feel” is not helpful especially for beginners. A how to, step by step process in making a mug or a bowl is helpful. We want to enjoy our time! We want to learn ! We want to be engaged. But felt like it was more of a headache for the artist than an exciting experience to share. Overall poor experience that did not help the rest of our day in plans and other birthday festivities.

We just had a private lesson with Ashley! She was incredibly friendly and was very knowledgeable about clay throwing. She made sure that we were comfortable even though we were nervous about messing up and always gave positive reinforcement when our clay bowls were giving us a hard time. Thank you for the great experience and we are looking forward to coming back!

Please note Magdela was not our instructor as she was away, so none of this review can reflect her or what she would have brought to the experience. We instead had Svetlana as our instructor who really did not provide a good experience. Her personality and teaching style came off as abrasive, including a few verbal jabs at my girlfriend saying how she wasn’t doing well and needed lots more practice - this being our very first time doing this. The remarks might have been attempt at playfulness, but they hit sour. That aside, we also felt like the format was a bit rushed and without much structure. It would have been helpful for us to get a bit more instruction before actually starting on the wheel - especially since you can only turn the clay for so long. It was definitely fun to turn the clay and we’re excited to use our pieces once they dry, we just were not happy with the instructor or class format and felt it was not worth the money.
