"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!
