About your host

I am a local artist in Indianapolis who specializes in functional and sculptural ceramics. My private studio space is perfect for intimate lessons for couples and one on one sessions. I studied at Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, and received my degree in Ceramics in May if 2017. I have been working out of my private studio for three years now and teaching lessons for two.

What we’ll do

During your hour and a half session, you will receive provided instructions for making functional vessels. Each guest will be provided with three 1lb balls of clay to make three vessels. Items can be fired, glazed and shipped for an additional charge. Notice: this process will take about two weeks to complete if requested.

What else you should know

You will get messy! Longer nails can make it difficult to throw on the wheel, and clay can get stuck under them. Please do not wear dangling necklaces, scarves, etc. as you will be leaning over a spinning wheel. Please do not bring children unless notifying beforehand.

What I’ll provide

Creative supplies
3 lbs of clay, pottery tools, and pottery wheels. Aprons are also provided. Please note: firing is an additional cost, as this process takes about a week to two weeks to dry and put a foodsafe glaze on. Items can be shipped

What to bring

Clothes that can get dirty! Please avoid wearing rings and dangling items.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our lessons inside our private studio within a production pottery facilities on the Near east side of Indianapolis. There are several other artist studio spaces within the facilities that provides a very artistic and creative environment.
