Our very popular Study From Afar online pottery education is designed to inspire and equip the emerging ceramic artist. Sarah Wells Rolland has developed extensive ongoing live virtual classes, exploring multiple forms, and techniques, with an emphasis on skill building. These classes include recommended weekly projects, and opportunities to ask questions and share our work, Sarah likes to call “show and tell”. We host guest instructors on this platform as well.
We are also a Laguna Clay distributor and have a tool shop. Our Director of Operations, Lindsey Mudge, can assist all your clay needs.
We hope you will look around our website for more information and register for a class or workshop, and shop in our gallery.
