Silky Shapes is a relaxed creative space where you can explore your interest in pottery and ceramics.
Have you been thinking about learning pottery, but are worried that it may be too difficult? Here, at Silky Shapes Studio, we believe that everyone can learn how to make pottery. And we have designed our beginners pottery classes so that you will be making your own pottery after just one lesson.
At Silky Shapes Studio we teach easy to follow pottery techniques, which we demonstrate and explain thoroughly to you. The beginners' package consists of three 2-hour classes, where you learn to throw, trim and glaze basic cylindrical pieces of pottery. These three classes have to be spread over the span of 3 weeks to allow time for your pottery to dry and get fired. The cost of the 3 classes beginners' package is $135. To register yourself for 3 beginners' pottery classes use our booking page.
Upon completion of this package, you are welcome to continue taking pottery classes as a returning student to improve your skills and knowledge. As you do, you will begin to work on bigger projects like matching sets of functional pottery, teapots, hand building, surface decorations, mold making and slip-casting. Returning students can use our flexible booking system to book any class during the week according to their schedule. The cost of classes for returning students is $35/class or $300/10 classes. Please check our booking page to secure your spot in our pottery classes.
Our affordable and fun pottery classes are conducted in small groups and include all materials and firing costs. Classes are offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Those who do not need classes, but would like to use a pottery wheel, studio equipment and the kiln are welcome to come and work independently on Thursdays and Fridays. To book yourself to work independently at Silky Shapes Studio please use our booking page.
