What you'll learn in this pottery class:

The workshop is a hand building course using slabs of porcelain to build functional objects.

In the workshop, we will apply colored clay "slips" to the surface of the clay and create decorative patterns in blue, black, gray and pink.

Workshop participants will make at least 1 planter that will be finished with glaze. The planter can be picked up 2-3 weeks after the workshop.

Question from Michelle L.
Hello! Do beginners need to already be familiar with any pottery techniques in order to attend this class? Or is it okay to have next to no experience?
Answer from Kevin W. Verified Educator
Hey- next to no experience is great! Perfect for beginners- Thank you-
Question from Travis W.
Hi! I was wondering if in this class, will we be making what is featured in the picture above? Looks like its a pot and the little holder for it? Thanks! Travis
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Travis! For the planter workshop, students will make the pots and the trays. The only difference is the planter in the picture is slightly bigger than the ones students make in class. The ones students make in the workshop are 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches. Hope this helps!
Question from Kalyani K.
Hi Does this course ONLY teach how to paint and glaze the mugs or are the mugs made from scratch to finish?
Answer from Kevin W. Verified Educator
Hi. We make the pieces from scratch using porcelain. We are not a “paint your pot studio” Thank you!

Reviewed by Blair S. on 7/1/2019
Really enjoyed this class! It's VERY relaxed and low key. Feel free to grab a coffee between stages. Plenty of time to make additional pieces (for a fee). I have already recommended it to friends.

This porcelain planter course was incredibly fun, educational, and well-priced. I do not consider myself particularly artsy/talented but found it refreshingly easy and found plenty of inspiration at the class to make beautiful pieces. I shared photos throughout the process on my instagram story and had several friends reach out with questions because of how fun/cute it all was! Given the cost of most finished porcelain products, I thought this class was incredibly well-priced, especially since you can do additional items for $9. I went by myself and enjoyed it thoroughly, though it is also fitting for couples (most people came with a friend/significant other).

Such a great class! The instructors were great teachers and super nice. There was a lot of variety of things you could do to the planters which was nice. Not all students did the same thing.
