Let’s Get Muddy!
Come create with us! We offer a fun, welcoming atmosphere for folks of all ages and skill levels. Whether you know your way around the wheel or you’re a complete beginner, you’ll find a home here. Saltstone Ceramics provides a friendly, encouraging environment for everyone to explore and practice at their own pace.
eight week pottery COURSE
The next 8-week session will be Winter 2019, beginning at the end of January. Registration for this session will open on Friday, November 9th at noon. Check back here to sign up!
We offer weekly pottery classes in Seattle in eight week blocks. Each class session is three hours long. During a typical eight week block you will practice both wheel throwing and hand building; surface decoration; and different glaze techniques. And you will end the 8 weeks with a cool new skill and some pottery you made yourself!
We’re offering a special session this January, just for 12 - 16 year olds! Over four weeks, students will learn to throw cups and bowls on the pottery wheel — plus techniques for trimming and glazing. A small class size means everyone gets lots of attention.
The next chance for your kids to get dirty is December 1st, from 1pm to 6pm, at our Kid’s Clay Factory: Personalized Plates. Using natural materials, hands, and other fun tools, kids can print and stain a design onto a real ceramic plate. It’s fun for all ages!
Book a session with one of our friendly, talented instructors! Each private lesson costs $110 per person (maximum two people), and lasts two hours. You’ll learn the basics of wheel throwing, and when you’re done we’ll glaze and fire your artwork for you.
We’re happy to craft a custom curriculum for you if there’s a special technique you’d like to explore. Learn more about private lessons here.
