Kid’s Classes

Kid’s Classes at Portland Pottery typically run in 6-10 week sessions. They meet once a week and for 90 minutes and work with an experienced instructor. We accept kids from the ages of 6-16.  We can also coordinate custom classes for groups of six kids or more, call or email us for details.

Please read our Studio Policies before registering.


Ages 6 and older
Working on the potter’s wheel, students learn to center clay, throw pots in various forms, and decorate and glaze their pieces. Handbuilding techniques will also be explored. Our experienced teachers will explain all steps of the clay process and encourage individual creativity at all Six-eight week sessions allow lots of time for producing work, and the last day is Glaze Day.  Classes meet once a week for 90 minutes.
