Det skal I lave

We will start with some of the interesting history of the studio space. Then I will get you situated on the wheel and show you how to properly secure your lump of clay. After the clay is secured we start the wheel spinning nice and fast. I will show you how to center the clay which is a very important (and frustrating) stage of making pottery on the wheel. After we successfully center the clay, you will explore how the clay moves and reacts to your touch. We will work to form a simple shape such as a bowl or cup. To finish off we will do some clean up of the form and remove the piece from the wheel in order to start experimenting with the next piece. You can expect to get to practice with around 6 lumps of clay (more if you are ambitious) and most people will create 2-3 pieces by the end of the session.

Pieces will be professionally finished, fired, and glazed after the experience. This process takes at least 3 weeks. After the pieces are finished you can pickup in the studio or they can be shipped. Shipping costs are paid by the guest.
Other things to note
Come wearing clothes that you don't mind getting messy. We will provide aprons. If you have long hair plan to have a hair tie or a way to secure your hair back. Trim long nails if you are able.

Hello! I absolutely love working in clay and have spent the last 2 years teaching ceramics at a community art program in downtown San Francisco. Previous to teaching wheel throwing and sculpting, I worked at a ceramic supplier where I gained immense knowledge on everything to do with Ceramics! Now I am following my dream of having a home studio and gallery space. I would love nothing more than welcoming curious and adventurous folks in to my studio to learn the joys of working in clay. My studio is located on the ground level of a beautiful Victorian built in the late 1800's!

Her skal du være

We will be in the ground level studio and gallery of a Victorian house. The space was a club house of some kind for the previous owners and they would hold various events in the space in the early 1900s. We are in the process of researching more about what they were exactly doing. We found artifacts and photos from that time and we know they referred to their group as X?X. Which is the inspiration for the current name of studio and gallery space.

호스트가 엄청 친절합니다. 그 날 게스트 이름을 다 써놓고 외워서 불러주시더라고요. 제 이름을 영어로 써줄 수도 있었겠지만 한글로 이름을 써주겠다면서 저희 이름 발음과 철자를 물어보시는 섬세함이 좋았어요. 수업 자체도 너무 재미있었고 많이 어렵지도 않았습니다. 도자기 만들기 체험 해보고 싶으시다면 이곳을 추천 드립니다 :) The host was very kind. She wrote down and memorized all of the guests' names. She could write down my name in English but she asked my name's pronunciation and letter in Korean and it was very touching. Class was very interesting and not that difficult to me. If you want to have an experience to make pottery, I would recommend this place :)

What a fun night. Our host was an excellent teacher for our group of beginners. Knew when to step in and help and when to let us learn on our own. I would love to go back one day!

I’ve never tried making pottery but was persuaded by friends. Marieke made it approachable and fun! She is a great teacher and would go back again!

It was a great group activity! Went with some girlfriends and we had a fun time learning and chatting and getting our hands dirty! Can’t wait for the final product! The teacher was wonderful and patient! Could not ask for a better night.

Great pottery class. The instructor Marieke was very helpful throughout the process. The class takes place in a cool little classic Victorian space. We had a lot of fun on this experience and look forward to coming back again. It's a very calming experience when shaping the clay. I was very happy with my results, thanks to an awesome instructor.
