Ready to sign up?

This four-session class will meet Thursdays 6-8pm. It will start 11/8/18 and end on 12/6. (No class on Thanksgiving.)

    • This class is meant for kids to take with their parents or caregivers.
    • Kids must be at least 7 years old.
    • Class will be held on Thursdays from 6-8PM
    • The class will include 4 Thursday evening sessions, from 11/8 - 12/6, with no class on Thanksgiving.
    • The class will be limited to 8 students (including both adults and kids).
    • All participants will have their own wheel.
    • Wheel-throwing may be a difficult skill for very young children, as they might not have the arm strength necessary. Because of this, no children younger than 7 should enroll.

    Hi young artists! Want to try throwing on a potter's wheel? Bring your adult with you and take a class together!

    This class will introduce the basics of wheel-throwing. It is for students with no to little ceramics experience. By the end of the session, everyone will have a few pieces to glaze and fire.

    Come learn at Make Waynesboro Clay Studio in Waynesboro, VA. No experience necessary!

    What's it cost? What's the fee include?

    A four-week class session costs $100.00 per student (each kid and adult must pay a separate fee). Members of the SVAC and SAAC receive a 10% discount.

    The $100 class fee includes 4 weeks of instruction, clay, use of studio tools, and firing credit. (Firing credit is limited. You'll be able to bisque some of your pieces, and glaze fire up to a half-shelf of work. Trust us-- that's enough. If you want to fire more, you'll be able to pay extra for it.)


    Classes are held at Make Waynesboro Clay Studio, near downtown Waynesboro. The address is 200 W 12th St., Waynesboro VA 22980. The studio is part of a larger complex at The Mill at South River. Students will be provided with specific directions before the first class.


    This session will be taught by Tori Jackson. Tori holds a BFA in Art Education from JMU. She has experience teaching K12 as well as at our studio.
