Classes—1 to 2 Days

Click here for information on all of our classes.

Look over our one- and two-day hand-building classes below. Click here for three- to six-week classes.


We offer a variety of classes for ages 14 to adult; all experience levels are welcome. Using slabs of clay and a template you will roll or stamp a design into the clay, cut out and assemble. Pick out a glaze color and after drying and firing your piece, we will glaze and fire again in the kiln. Pottery will be ready in 3 1/2 weeks.

Please register by 5:30 pm the day before the class starts. Register here on the site, or call 434-315-5715 or email butlerp@mainlyclay.com. If you must cancel, please give us at least 24-hour notice and we will give you a gift certificate for another class.
