What's it cost? What's the fee include?
A six-week class session costs $150.00 per student. Members of the SVAC and SAAC receive a 10% discount.
The $150 class fee includes 6 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.)
The studio's 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 (including code for the gate, which you need after 5pm) before the first class.

More about the class sessions
During each class meeting, the instructor will demonstrate skills and give students time to practice. In general, the 5th class is devoted to completing "wet work", and the last class is for glazing. By the end of the session, everyone should have some finished work to take home!
