Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

Working with clay is mesmerizing - and challenging. After a tour of the studio guests will don aprons and sit down at their own wheels to "throw" a vase or bowl. We work "hands-on," with each person to insure that you come away with at least on beautiful vessel. You may take the piece home, as is, or (for a small charge) have us to bisque, glaze and high-fire it for you. You may visit the gallery and explore surface decoration; then select your own glaze from more than 40 finishes. Or you may come back for a 2nd (glazing) workshop. Finished pieces can be picked up a few weeks later, or shipped if you prefer.

AS A SAFETY MEASURE, ALL POTTERY WORKSHOPS WILL BE PRIVATE. Your "group" may be as small as 1 or large as 8, but we will only teach one group at a time. It will be PRIVATE.

SCULPTING. Some guests (especially children) prefer sculpting or "handbuilding," rather than "throwing on the wheel." In this case, we'll conduct your workshop in the handbuilding room, and your piece may be finished weeks sooner. Children under 11 may not have the strength or coordination to throw on the wheel. But they LOVE hand-building!

Clay IS a Magical Material. Every student is different, and everyone receives individual instruction. You may want to think, in advance, about what you'd like to make. Your only limitation is your imagination!
Other things to note
Children are welcome, but kids under 11 should plan on "handbuilding," rather than throwing on the wheel. They'll be able to sculpt an animal, make a soap dish -- or build a castle!

She now pursues her passion: making hand-made ceramics. She has opened the studio, Firestick Pottery, to other Ojai artists, many of whom show in galleries nationwide.

Her skal du være

Ojai is a mecca for "seekers," with a history of alternative philosophy, respect for the environment, celebration of the arts. especially ceramics. We have a gallery, a sculpting room, 14 potters wheels, and 4 kilns. Guests are welcome to watch potters as they work, and might even be present for a "kiln opening." The Studio is surrounded by farms and fruit trees. You may pick oranges, peaches or pomegranates, when they're in season.

I have never done any type of ceramics or work with clay before. It was a great experience and I welcomed the assistance to help create items that were worth firing and taking home

Really fun class. Like Robin will tell you, this is just a taste of "throwing." Many students in the class were signed up for glazing and future classes at the studio. The instructors that day were really kind and patient and made our first-time experience really great. We, too, would be sucked in for more classes if we weren't relocating to Orange County. Buy through the studio directly!

The actual experience was REALLY fun for our family, minus the interaction at the end when picking out a piece to fire. I wish it wasn’t so rushed and that Robin was a little more personable and patient, as it put a damper on the end of something really fun. There was a young gentleman that assisted/instructed during the event that was GREAT!

this is a wonderful and very fun experience. the class was action packed and I felt very supported and guided through the process. I would highly recommend it! It's a great setting and working studio with lots of artists popping in and out. I was in a couple and we were mixed with another group who were lovely. So we all learned together with a lot of laughter!

It was a really fun experience! The location is great, and the teachers are very educated. The vibe was very relaxed and they help was very handy- sculpting isn't as easy as it looks! But it was very enjoyable, grounding, and fun. We will be back soon for the glazing workshop!
