The ARTisans potters are available for private lessons and group classes. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on class offerings.
Kalamazoo ARTisans is a co-op pottery studio and some of our members will teach private pottery classes. The cost is determined by the teacher as it may involve their supplies but it usually is $50 per session(which would be at least 2 hours of instruction). As this is a private lesson, the day and time is arranged by the teacher. We have the ability to teach handbuilding and wheel throwing techniques. We don't teach children unless their parents also participate.
