Classes @ TRP

COVID-19 has changed a lot, including how we handle classes at Talking Rock Pottery. For your safety and ours, we have reduced the number of folks accepted into a class. We are also encouraging classes of friends/family members who are already in regular contact. To achieve this, we are working directly with perspective students to schedule a class time that meets their needs. Click “What ‘cha want” to tell us what type of class you are interested in. An instructor will contact you and plan a class that meets your interests and schedule.

TRP Offers:

Boot Camp: Is making pottery on your bucket list? Come to Pottery Boot Camp for a 2-hour crash course, hands-on, wheel thrown pottery experience! Students will get a quick studio tour and preview of making beautiful handmade pottery, then saddle up for an hour and a half at the pottery wheel attempting to make functional pots. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting muddy. Consider clipping long fingernails….clay doesn’t play well with long nails! Please note, we have resident cats!
