Owner /Instructor Rebecca Pincus
After more than 20 years working in clay, I find my excitement never lessens. The clay's earthiness, the excitement of glazes and the magic of the kiln still inspire me every day. I believe my strength as an instructor is in identifying a student's goals and encouraging their unique vision.
All classes are 7 weeks long
Class Fee: $240, plus clay
Please note: we do not offer single or drop-in classes.
