Pottery Classes in Vancouver
I teach several classes each week in Vancouver and Burnaby.
Classes cover wheel-throwing, some hand-building, decoration techniques and glazing. Beginners are welcome, but classes are also appropriate for more advanced students.
Listed below are the days, times and locations where I teach.

I believe in a hands-on approach to learning to make pots. I feel direct experience is the best teacher, so I encourage students to get dirty right away. I do several demonstrations per class, and am very open to suggestions from students. I try to keep out of people's way, while being there to keep an eye on their progress and am ready to step up to assist, as soon as I see a problem or am asked for help. The main objective in my classes is to have fun, get creative, and to hopefully bring home some beautiful hand-made pots.
