All classes are seven weeks long and cost $250. Classes meet once a week, lasting for two hours. Each class accommodates up to ten students. Students have full access to the studio during class time and designated open studio hours each week. Each student is given 25lbs of clay per course (more clay is available for purchase as needed).
