Tools to Bring

If you are wheel throwing, you will need a tool kit and an apron and/or bath towel and water bucket.

If you are hand building, you may want a good part of the tool kit but will need at least a pin tool and wire tool.  Sometimes there are great tools just around the house.

Pottery Tool Kit Examples:

Hobby Lobby Pottery Tool Set $12 (40% coupons often offered)

Baileys and other ceramics stores offer a higher quality tool set

Amazon: Darice 8-Piece Pottery Tool Set $10

Amazon: SE 8-Piece Pottery Tool Set $10

Purchasing Individual Classes

Priority is given to students who sign up for the entire term.  You may sign up for individual classes and labs the first day a class begins.  A paper sign up list will be posted outside the Ceramics Studio that indicates how many spaces are available in each class.  After you see that space is available, write your name in the empty space and purchase the class.  Failure to write your name on the paper and pay for the class may result in forfeiting your spot. 

For the children's camps, call 435-554-7065 to discuss availability and purchase.
