Pottery Classes with Chris Hoggard are back!

Pottery classes run for two hours and are available Mondays and Tuesdays with sessions in the morning, afternoon and evening.  
Students pay an “up front” fee for a six week period which covers all material costs including use of tools, clay,  glazes, and firings. A wide range of hand building, glazing and decorating techniques are offered as an introduction.
Generally, after several weeks students choose to create individual works with assistance, resulting a large range of projects happening at any one time. As classes are small (no more than six students per class) plenty of assistance is available.
Many of my students have had minimal experience with clay and it is so gratifying to watch them become more confident with each project they attempt.
I have loved meeting many lovely new people who have joined my classes and look forward to seeing what the future brings.
