Pottery Classes for Adults

Our inviting Zen-like atmosphere will encourage you to relax and take your mind off everyday life. There’s no pressure to make the perfect pot—we want you to enjoy the experience of working with clay. Good Dirt LA is all about artistic self-discovery!
Our mixed-levels adult classes are offered on a continuous schedule, so you may join a class at any time. Our teachers and class format are flexible, designed to allow each student to learn at their own pace and to pursue their own creative interests in a supportive community. We strongly suggest, but do not require, that students who are brand new to pottery start with our one-time workshops: “Intro to Pottery” or “Intro to the Potter’s Wheel.” These classes guide new students (or those who want a refresher) step by step through the basics of throwing on the wheel and hand-building with slabs. A private Intro Class is also an option. For more information and to book private and semi-private lessons as well as events, please e-mail gdlastaff@gmail.com.
In 2018, we will add a new step-by-step class to the schedule: “Pottery Boot Camp”! This 6-week intensive will offer structured lessons in throwing on the wheel, handbuilding with coil, slabs, and pinching, glazing, and more! Look for Pottery Boot Camp within Workshops on MINDBODY to sign up.
