Tulsa Pottery Class for Spring Break and more

Pinch pots made by Becky Weggler in class
We just want to have fun and spend some creative time learning something new.

Well pottery class may be just what you want.

I will be in town over spring break making lots of pots for the upcoming spring art shows. And, I have discovered I really like tutoring adults and children individually or 2 or 3 at a time. We get to know each other and it makes the class more special for all of us. I have taught all ages from 3-83 and have been doing this for over 35 years.

I offer a creative environment and probably the smallest class size in town. This is more fun for us all. So here is the deal:
Call or email me and set up an appointment.
I tutor for $25 per hour plus materials and we make what you want to make or I give you ideas if you do not have the experience to know what you want or how to do it. The classes are by appointment to meet both our schedules.

I am also starting a new adult beginning pottery class on Tues nights next week from 6:30-9 or so. The price is $25 per class plus materials. It is a 6 week class but people join as they please, unlike the more structured old days and I keep the ball rolling and the students learn something new every week. I demonstrate at the beginning and then you can do something similar or maybe something different. The class size is usually 5-6 at a time. It can be as challenging or relaxing as you please. After several classes and learning the basic technical skills you can advance to the Wed night class.

I include the basic info below. Just call for more info at (918) 747-7574 or (00's are numbers not letters).

Rank beginners should not be afraid. You will be amazed at what you can make. And it is a great place to make new friends.

Tuesday Evenings Beginning Handbuilding, the basic techniques, pottery, 6:30-9 p.m. six-week classes are designed for beginners and those getting back into clay. Students will learn how to make pinch pots, slab pots, coiled pots and hollowed-out forms and how to create pots using a combination of these techniques. Students will also get an introduction to firing and will glaze their own pots. During each class, students will watch a demonstration of a new technique and then work to complete their own forms. The atmosphere will be relaxed and productive. Class size 5-8 persons.

Advanced or repeating students will be given more challenging versions of the above projects or they may repeat any project they desire. Be sure to let me know you are repeating and send in your deposit ASAP.

Wednesday Evenings Beginning and Intermediate pottery, 6:30-9:00 p.m. Class size: 6-10

This class offers more exploration of individual projects. Students with the basic handbuilding skills will love the loose nature of the class. I am there to guide and help and suggest project ideas but students work more independently. Problem solving with specific wheel problems available during this time. Make reservations based on space available per week


Fee: $25 per class or $150 for 6 weeks plus materials and includes the firing and glazing of six-10 pieces. A small firing fee will be charged for any additional pieces.

During our tough economic times, class fee may be paid by the month (4 classes)
