a pottery studio and gallery

We've been providing pottery classes to the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area since 2008.  
Beginning and advanced students are welcome.

For more experienced students we offer the opportunity, guidance and encouragement to improve skills and develop a unique style.  While we encourage entering the marketplace, our studio is not the place for production work or cottage industry.  Our emphasis is on teaching, learning and improving.

We also conduct one-day corporate team-building workshops.

For children, we teach group workshops for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4-H and home-school groups.  These are one-visit workshops that last about two hours.  We also offer parent/child workshops which require two visits to the studio.  The first day to make the pottery and the second to decorate and glaze it.  The adult and child each make their own piece.

At the current time, we do not offer "date nights" on the pottery wheel.  Our experience is that a student's ability on the pottery wheel is extremely limited during a one-time session. If you commit to invest the time in seven classes, we have a much better chance for your success.
