POTTERY CLASSESInstructor Terry BuffingtonOwner, Pugaboo Pottery Studio

Come join us on Thursday mornings (see dates below) for an exciting time creating with clay and socializing with friends. Pottery students of all experience levels and ages (parents must accompany children) are most welcome to come and enjoy individual lessons within a group setting.

You can create anything you would like using any of the numerous methods of working in clay. Explore hand building as well as wheel throwing. You decide the area of interest you want to study and instructor, Terry Buffington, will be there to help guide you on your clay journey!

Try a single session if you are unsure that clay is for you, but you have always wanted to try it. Please note: You will not be able to create a completed project during one session; it takes at least two sessions to create, dry, fire, glaze and fire again.

The six-block of lessons can be used during any Thursday morning pottery class taught by Terry Buffington. The 6-lesson option need not be used on consecutive weeks. Use them as you have the time to do so, every other week, once a month, etc. This option gives you plenty of flexibility to match your pottery classes to your schedule.

You have a choice of either a brown or a white 25 lb. bag of clay. The clay fee covers the clay, glazes, and firing of your pieces.
