Class size is limited to 5, which is the ideal number of people to make things interesting, but intimate enough to assure individual attention from the instructor. Dove Pottery is dedicated to bringing you well-documented stress reduction and healing properties of clay. Creating an emotionally safe, fun atmosphere of acceptance and inclusion is our priority.
The classes are structured to facilitate positive interaction and easy conversation. So, if you have interested friends, bring them with you. If your new to the city or neighborhood we make it easier to meet and make new friends. Whatever your goals are for taking the class you will find this activity personally empowering.
You will be taking a lump of clay, shaping it in your hands, creating something beautiful and unique and thus transforming it from clay to art that can last a lifetime. So whether your goal is: to make unique presents for your family and friends, have a fun night out to gather and meet others or to become a “master potter”, Dove Pottery has the resources to help you on your journey.
