Ceramics Classes at Maryland Hall

Our ceramics and pottery program is one of our most thriving education programs. Our expansive studio provides the perfect environment, tools and materials needed to work in clay. Our Teaching Artists take care to offer a robust schedule of classes each semester that include one-time workshops to "just try it" and classes that guide you through all aspects of ceramic art: handbuilding, wheel, glazing and more. There are also open studio opportunities for registered students. Taking a ceramics class with us welcomes you into a supportive community of ceramicists, each on their own clay journey. Classes are offered for children, teens and adults.

    Always thought that it looked like fun to throw clay on the potter’s wheel? Here’s your chance to just try it, a two-time session giving the wheel a spin. You get a quick introduction to wheel throwing …then you try it. We supply materials and tools, basic instruction and hands-on assistance. At the end you choose two to three pieces to be fired . On the following session we will talk about different glazing and decoration techniques and you will have a chance to glaze your pieces. Your finished pots can be picked up a couple weeks later. This is a great class for the curious or those who just want to check pottery off the bucket list! No experience required. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy and bring and old towel. Materials fee of $10 is due in class. For more information, please contact the instructor at renata_mastroti@yahoo.com.
