Cowee Pottery School is here to serve those who have always wanted to get their hands muddy and create pottery, to play in clay. Which is why we're excited to host a range of pottery classes for the community. Difficulty level ranges from introductory to experienced, however most all classes will have a beginner aspect to them. And of course, all classes cater to the curious.
Students will purchase their clay from the Pottery School for $25 for 25 pounds. The cost of clay includes glazes and two firings in the kiln. In addition, basic tools are available for sale.
Cowee Pottery School provides regular open studio time to get additional studio time on student projects and to make up missed classroom time.
