The introductory workshops are normally held in the evening for 4 consecutive weeks, 2.5 hours per week. More advanced workshops are 6 weeks in duration, 2.5 hours per week. Instructors are responsible for developing the weekly plans, teaching the group, and firing the participant’s pottery. These workshops run on a rotational basis throughout the year from January-June and September-December.
