The Stoneware Studio is a communal studio space privately owned by five partners. It adjoins the Stoneware Gallery, and together the two businesses work in a symbiotic relationship. It’s a dynamic community of students, teachers and professional potters who have practiced in this space since the foundation of both businesses in 1978. Today, its main focuses are classes, and the use of its large gas kiln.
The current studio partners are: Valerie Metcalfe, Marusia Foster, Kathryne Koop, Jennifer Johnson and Colleen Chamberlin.
Regular classes – These operate from September to June, where students pay at the beginning of each month and continue for as many consecutive months as they are interested. For some this has become years, but for others, attendance is for a few months only. New students are contacted when someone quits, and must commit to two consecutive months as a minimum. (Click on “regular classes” link for more info.)
Summer classes – Four or five different classes are offered as an eight week session during July and August. This is a great time for new students to be introduced to throwing. (Click on “summer classes” link for more info.)
