July 12th, 13th & 19th
(Saturday, Sunday and following Saturday)
10am-3pm each day.

A fun group workshop fashioned with hand-building techniques that you can use almost anywhere. We'll start with the wonderfully organic methods of pinching and coiling to create our forms. We'll add slab work, designing with paper templates and a myriad of original textures. The following Saturday, we'll finish our bisqued pieces with various glazing techniques. All works will be final fired for later pick up.
Tuition: $235.00 includes all materials. See "Registration Requires" below.

"Fantastic introduction...Classes are small, so if you're new to pottery - like me - you get lots of attention. If you're already experienced, then you get Barbara's expert advice when you want it. Great atmosphere...and a great way to explore the medium."

-Elizabeth W. Seattle, WA

"Barbara is incredibly fabulous"

"I had never used a potter's wheel or even been inside a pottery studio when I began classes with Barbara. She has made the study of pottery very enjoyable as well as informative. We always have a lot of fun in class, but it is a serious class and a great educational experience. Barb is very patient as well and encouraging to all her students no matter what their skill level is. I highly recommend Barbara Dunshee Pottery."

-James M

Studio Sustainability & Conservation

Barbara Dunshee Pottery practices sustainability and water conservation! We wet-clean as we work to keep clay dust to a minimum, ensuring clean, healthy air in the studio. The studio water is sourced with non-plumbed containers, allowing all clay and glazes to be recycled and reused within the ecosystem of the studio. Electric lighting is a combination of LED and full-spectrum fluorescents. Flooring is recycled rubber from tires. Even the students are recycled since they keep coming right back!
