Ceramic Classes

Delve into the world of ceramics with Tara Joshi, the talented owner of TJ Pottery, who leads engaging workshops at Whitepine Studios. With a background in both Ceramics and Art History, Tara imparts her knowledge through these workshops, teaching ceramics terminology and fundamental principles of hand building.

Participants in Tara’s workshops embark on a journey to master the techniques and skills of working with clay, creating unique ceramic artworks. These classes specifically focus on hand-building techniques, ensuring a comprehensive learning experience for individuals of all ages and skill levels. Students discover the art of shaping clay by hand, employing surface decoration through carving and glazing techniques, and gaining insight into the firing process.

Once completed, the crafted pieces undergo firing in Tara’s kiln, and participants can eagerly pick up their finished artworks at our studio.
