Lakeside Pottery is a ceramic art and craft educational resource focusing on clay art. We offer a one-time experience potter’s wheel workshop, weekend and during the week, for the beginner and for those who have taken beginning pottery classes in the past and would like a refresher lesson. This workshop will introduce the basic skills of working with clay on the potter's wheel and will provide you with the understanding of what it takes to use the potter's wheel. No previous experience required.

Workshop includes a demonstration and hands-on clay experience. Tools will be provided - participants need to bring their own towel. Your pots will be glazed by our staff with your glaze choice and will be fired (high fire functional stoneware).
