Signing up for classes at Good Dirt LA is easy! We use Mind Body to manage our schedules and payments online.
The schedule for our Intro to Pottery classes for beginners as well as workshops are listed under “WORKSHOPS” on Mind Body. Here is where you will sign up for our ONE TIME CLASSES: $55 as well as our Wine & Pottery workshop. If the session you are interested in is not open for registration online, please email the studio at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Workshop” in the subject line. We require three students to commit to the class before we open registration online.
If you’re brand new to working with clay or would like to become more familiar with pottery techniques before enrolling in either our regular and ongoing 4-week or 12-week sessions, then we highly recommend taking one of our workshops first.
We offer 2 kinds of class packages and 2 kinds of enrollments to our students:
4-Week Class Package – $175
This package includes 4 consecutive classes and does not auto-renew. Great for first-time students or for students who do not plan to make work at the studio for an extended period of time. Students may reschedule one class for studio time provided that they provide 24 hours notice on the cancellation.
12-Week Class Package – $525
This package includes 12 consecutive classes and does not auto-renew. Ideal for students who want to commit to a little extra time. This package includes one free studio time session. Students may reschedule three classes for studio time provided that they provide 24 hours notice on the cancellation.
4-Week Auto-Renew Contract – $170 every 4-weeks
A nice option for students who plan to use the studio for an extended period of time. You may opt out of this membership at any time, but it will lock in your seat in your class. Students may reschedule one class for studio time every 4-weeks provided that they provide 24 hours notice on the cancellation.
12-Week Auto-Renew Contract – $510 every 12 weeks
A convenient option for students who plan to use the studio for an extended period of time. You may opt out of this membership at any time, but it will lock in your seat in your class. You will receive one free studio time session every 12-weeks. Students may reschedule three classes for studio time every 12 weeks provided that they provide 24 hours notice on a cancellation.
Current students may elect to come to the studio for studio time to finish work by adding handles, surface decoration, glaze, etc. A wheel is not guaranteed when you come for studio time, but you can often jump on the wheel with the supervising teacher’s permission.
Studio Time is $35/session and some of our packages offer complimentary Studio Time.

Students may only cancel ONE class per 4-week session. To reserve your spot, classes need to be paid for in advance. If you need to cancel for any reason, please e-mail us at least 24 hours in advance and cancel the class in Mind Body. A single early cancellation will be honored and we will offer you a voucher so that you can reschedule this session for studio time within 2-weeks of the last date of your session. Late cancellations or multiple cancellations in a given 4-week session result in the forfeit of the class session. We do not offer refunds.
NEXT PAYMENT DUE DATE:
If you plan on continuing classes, please let us know and we will send you instructions for signing up for your next session or an auto-pay contract.
4 WEEK ABSENT RULE:
For all students: if you will be out of the studio for more than 4 weeks at a time we ask that you remove all work from the shelves.
Current students may schedule “Studio Time” through Mind Body. The cost of a “Studio Time” session is $35.
Studio Time is independent work time available to students who are currently enrolled in classes or to students who have finished a series of classes within the previous 10 days. Studio Time is for students who need to finish work by adding handles, surface decoration, glaze, etc. A wheel is not guaranteed during Studio Time, but if one is open you are welcome to jump in to trim and finish work. (You can check the number of students signed up in a given class by looking at the class calendar on Mindbody.) You may use a maximum of 1.5# of clay to make new work during Studio Time sessions.
We ask that you please introduce yourself to the instructor when you come in for studio time and ask if you would like to use a wheel. The instructor’s focus will be on their class, but if you have questions, please feel free to ask knowing that you may have to wait until the instructor is finished working with students who are enrolled in the class.
