The Potter's Obsession currently offers 5 classes per week for beginning to advanced students. In small 6 person classes, you can learn the basics of wheel throwing and hand building with clay, and progress over time to intermediate and advanced levels of pottery making. Our classes are taught using an "open" work at your own pace, concentrating on the type of pottery you are interested in making with the aid of your teacher. Demonstrations and special projects are regularly included for the continued education of our students.

Classes at The Potter's Obsession run on a "year round" schedule. Students pay by the month. The cost of the class is $170.00 per month. This class fee covers your 3 hour class each week, meeting once each week, for four classes per month. All instruction, use of our equipment and tools, clay, decorating materials, glazes, and firings are included in the class fee. If interested, extra studio time for currently enrolled students may be purchased on Saturdays for a cost of $10 and hour. We would love to talk to you about joining one of our classes. Please call us at (816) 941-2555 to find out if we have an opening in a class that fits your schedule.

Try It Night

If you have always wanted to try wheel throwing but just haven't had time to commit to a month long class yet, please join us. Every second Friday evening of the month.   

 6pm to ? (class may last 2 to 3 hours depending on class size)

Students will join instructor Natalie Thomas while she guides them into the world of wheel throwing.  Here the students will learn the basics of wheel throwing in a friendly environment.  They will choose their best 2 pieces to keep and pick out their glaze colors.  Due to the many other steps that need to be completed before a finished piece is produced, Natalie will trim, fire, and glaze your pieces for you.  They will be available at a later date for pick up.

Class size is limited so participants must pre-register.  Class fee is $50 per person.  A non-refundable deposit of $25 is due upon registration in order to hold your spot in class. This deposit will go towards the class fee. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.         

Please call The Potter's Obsession to register at 816-941-2555
