Learn to wedge, cone up, center, open and shape vessels on the potters wheel in this fun, messy, exploratory 75-minute one-time private lesson.

The pottery studio is currently located in a private residential barn on IL-71 in Ottawa, IL. The specific address will be shared within 48 hours of selected lesson day and time. 


  • Unlimited white stoneware clay 
  • Individualized private instruction 
  • Access to studio apron and tools 

At the end of the lesson you can select from one of three options: 

Destruction Therapy

Enjoy the therapeutic and freeing sensation of destroying your work. It is just clay, after all! 

Keep your Masterpieces

Select from the available studio glazes that you would like your completed thrown piece(s) to be glazed in. I will do the initial bisque fire to transform the clay into stoneware, glaze the piece(s) you selected, and complete the final glaze fire. Completed pieces are available for pick-up in Plainfield or Ottawa within 2 weeks after the session.

Add an additional $10 per piece for the cost of the glaze, electricity for the firing, and time for me to glaze your work. 

Option to have completed pieces mailed to you with additional charge.

Enjoy your wheel-throwing experience and want more? Apply your private lesson fee towards a discounted "four-pack" of classes. During the second class we will focus on wedging, coning up, centering, opening and shaping vessels again. During the third class we will focus on refining the bottoms of your creations with trimming. Thrown and trimmed pieces will be bisque fired before the fourth class, during which you will glaze your pieces from the available studio glazes. Glaze fired pieces will be available for pick up within 2 weeks.
