What you'll do

You’ll start out by meeting me at my home, where my studio is. It’s a cozy cottage in the hills of Northeast Los Angeles, about 10 minutes from downtown. I provide complimentary craft beer, la croix, hot tea or a glass of wine to sip on while you throw. I can host up to five guests at a time and I’ll give demonstrations, helping out with tricks and techniques to get you going. I am happy to offer as much guidance as you wish, usually the first hour is lots of specific instruction and the second hour is a chance to experiment and practice while I remain close to help as needed. During your class you’ll get a chance to create as many pieces as you have time for. Everyone is different, some students might finish half a dozen pieces of pottery while others might spend nearly the whole class perfecting just a couple. The price includes a piece of pottery to take home. If you want to keep additional pieces there is an additional charge of $10 per piece and they take 4-8 weeks to be fired and glazed. You will have the option to choose your glaze color.

Penelope

I’m a ceramic artist working in Los Angeles. I’ve been working with ceramics for 6 years and teaching for two. I love to share this passion of mine. My studio is part of my home and even after all this time I am still completely in love with having my hands in clay. I hope by the end of our session you’ll understand why this practice is so fun, challenging and meditative.
