Teaching Opportunities

Eight-Week Sessions

We offer four sessions of eight-week classes each year. Teachers are responsible for one or more sessions, teaching the same day and time each week (typically weekday evenings). Most of our classes are for beginners and have a set, easy to follow curriculum. We offer one session focused on hand-building (8 students); the rest of our sessions focus on wheel throwing (12 students).

One teaching shift is about four hours long (including three hours of actual instruction). Our base rate for eight-week instructors is $30 per hour.

One-Night Sessions

We offer one-night sessions on Fridays about three times each month. This is a two-hour wheel throwing class for 12 students that introduces the basics of wedging, centering, and forming a cylinder. Students keep one piece that we glaze for them.

One teaching shift is about three hours long (including two hours of actual instruction). Our base rate for one-night instructors is $30 per hour.


We are always interested in hosting experienced potters who have a specific technique, style, or project they’d like to share with our community of students.

Successful workshops tend to be organized around a specific project that can be completed in about four hours, give or take an hour. Most workshops are focused around glaze, decoration, or hand-building techniques. We host eight to ten students for most workshops.

Workshop fees are generally split 50/50 with the instructor. A typical workshop instructor will be paid between $300 and $800 depending on the workshop’s price and attendance.
