Looking for a pottery class near me.

Question:

I'm trying to find a pottery class for my 16 year old daughter. Where do i look? I have looked for adult ed and enrichment classes and come up empty handed.

Answer:

I know what you mean. Finding local classes can be tough, especially in smaller towns. That's why I created this website.

Here are a couple of ideas. Look through the phone book (or internet) for ceramics galleries or pottery supply stores in your area.

Also, try contacting a local high school art or crafts teacher. They will be connected to what's going on locally.

Finally, you may have to travel a little ways to find a store or studio that offers classes. If the classes are just one day a week, then the drive isn't so bad.

Otherwise, buy a bag of clay for her to play with and have her check out the hand building projects under Beginning Projects.

Hope that helps,

Steve

P.S. I just did a little search online for pottery in Rochester. Have you checked out Artstream Studios? It looks like they have a handbuilding class.

pottery for 16 year old
by: Carson City Pottery

You have the luck of being in one of the best states as far as potters go. Call the NH Institute of Art in Manchester and request some referrals, or at least a place to go for referrals.
