Mindfulness and Pottery with guest teacher Jeannie Cziesla
Combining the therapeutic nature of clay with mindfulness practices students will create intentional pieces of pottery that reinforce and remind you of your core values and hopes and dreams. These beautiful pieces can be displayed in your home where the intention is conveyed each time your art catches your eye.

At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are and artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and integrity.-Rachel Naomi Reman-
We invite you to step into the creative journey of self healing.
On Going Adult Pottery classes
At this time all adult 101 pottery classes are full. You can contact Faye to be added to the waitlist but please expect a year or more wait.
The studio is small and cozy, there are 6 potters wheels, a large slab roller and an area for hand building. Tools, buckets, and huge array of decorating supples are all provided as well as a large selection of glazes and underglazes.
Classes max out with 8 students, occasionally 9. Due to the nature of the medium it sometimes takes years to master. Consequently students do not give up their spot often.
