Do I need to have experience to take a class?

No experience is necessary. Most of our classes are very beginner friendly.

What equipment do I need to bring to class?

We sell basic tool kits at Cowee Pottery School. We'll go over other helpful tools you might want during class. Your tool box can always grow and expand.  

What should I wear?

One of the best parts of pottery is getting muddy and messy. We recommend wearing comfortable, old clothing. You may also want to keep your nails short.

Who are the teachers?

All of Cowee Pottery School's classes are taught by experienced potters, all of whom are volunteering their time. 

Have the childrens' teachers had background checks?

We get background checks of anyone who will be working with kids. Our pottery classes for kids are all taught by former educators.

Can Children enroll in classes?  Children under 18 may enroll in a class with an instructor's approval.  Please email us at with questions.

What is hand building?

This is not the ceramic green ware pottery you might be familiar with. Hand building pottery involves rolling slabs of clay and sculpting the clay into pieces you are creating. It is making a unique piece of pottery from scratch.
