Pottery Classes for Fall

Wheel Basics for Adults
Cost: $190

This is the perfect class in which to learn how to throw on a potter's wheel. Whether it's your first time touching clay or you are working on mastering the basics, this class will help develop good working practices. Here you will learn to prepare the clay, center it on the wheel and to throw the two basic forms from which all pottery is created. Class size is small so there is plenty of opportunity for personal instruction and to explore on your own. Your first bag of clay and all the tools you need to get started will be supplied. Each class is two and a half hours running once a week for eight weeks.

Monday - Sept 18 - Nov 6 from 6:30-9:00 pm

Something Fishy in Bayfield
New Work by Artist Jean Cowper

Jean came into the gallery and asked if we were in the market for fish. What she pulled from her travelling office were Picket Fence Fish. Made out of fence pickets, personalized with acrylic based paints and ready to hang, these fish are great for the Bathroom, Kitchen, Office, or anywhere you need a little difference and a little fun. Get a school or a pod for your wall because no one likes to swim alone.
