These classes are perfect for students who like to follow their own lead. They are open to students with various skill levels, but some clay experience is required.  Ideally, you know what you want to do and just need some help getting there!  We’re here to guide you. Our student directed classes offer an open studio environment with direct one-on-one access to qualified instructors.  Classes will max out at 6 students to maintain an ideal intimate student to instructor ratio. Classes will meet once a week for 3 hours.  On your first day you will be provided with a 25lb box of clay.  All necessary tools and materials will be provided. Additional clay is always available to purchase if need be.
