Functional and decorative pottery by Lance Timco
Private Lessons in My Studio:
These intensive lessons are for those adults who want to learn how to throw or advance their current skills on the potters wheel. Lessons include anything from throwing functional wares to creating large decorative pieces. Lessons may also include instruction in glazing, loading and firing kilns. Private lessons are available as a single session with a minimum of two hours or in a series of lessons. The curriculum will be based on the specific desires of the student as well as the needs determined by the instructor. Although I do work in my studio on a daily basis, please call or email for an appointment. Private lessons are billed at $35/hour plus materials. Prepayment is required.
New students being accepted for limited time slots.
