Pottery Class, Scout Badges, Birthday Parties and Tutoring at Brookside Pottery, Tulsa

A new beginning class has just started at Brookside Pottery.
The class meets on Tuesday evening from 6:30-9, lasts 6 weeks, fee $150 plus materials. (materials run about $45 and includes clay, tools and firing).
Please note: my studio is a fair weather studio and during the winter's coldest months we have to delay the class. The shop is heated with space heaters and below 45 temps make it to cold to work. The rest of the year it is no big deal. So we must remain flexible with when we can meet.

A more advanced group meets on Wed. nights for the same fee and same price.

See info below for general info:

Brookside Pottery is here to help you learn the art of handbuilding and throwing clay. We make both utilitarian and sculptural creations.

Who? All interested persons who need help learning the basics of pottery making. I have the knowledge, equipment and space to make this fun. Over the past 35 years all ages have come to Brookside Pottery to make pottery and have been surprised what they can create with good instruction.

Where? Brookside Pottery is now located at 1138D East 37th Street, down the alley off 37th Street. It is a small creative studio with a garden outside complete with a picnic table for refreshment time.

When? Work time can be arranged individually. We can meet during your regular meeting time or on weekends at your convenience. Day or night, we are flexible. For an additional fee I can come to your regular meeting space although the real studio experience is fun and recommended.
The class usually lasts from one to one and a half hours including refreshment time.

Fees and alternative ways to learn about pottery: Special group rates for scouts, home schoolers, parties etc: One overall $25 instruction fee and $20 per person includes clay, materials and firing.
