The Village Potters also have a fully equipped Education Center providing ongoing classes in wheel, hand building, and specialty classes like sculpture, surface design, and jewelry making for the beginning and intermediate student. The Advanced Studies Program built upon Independent Study and Mentoring is designed specifically for the highly motivated emerging potter.
