Pottery Classes for Adults and Children

The Waterloo Potters Workshop has a strong emphasis on education as part of our mission. We offer classes to non-members throughout the year to learn handbuilding and wheel techniques. Adult Classes run in the fall, winter and spring. By taking the Handbuilding I and Wheel I classes you are then also eligible for membership at the workshop! Members are offered classes to continue to grow on their expertise with Wheel II and Handbuilding II, as well as additional classes and Workshops with visiting artists and professional members.

Childrens’ Classes are very popular and offered during March break and in the summer months.

In addition to the classes for non-members, there are also classes and workshops for Members. These are one of the many benefits of membership.
