Tools + Supplies

Classes

Beginning students should purchase a set of pottery tools at any store that sells art supplies. This kit costs approximately $15 and includes:

  • sponge
  • cutting wire
  • trimming loop tool
  • wooden rib
  • cutting wire
  • pin tool

Kits may be available for purchase for $15 at your first class.

Bring your own apron to protect your clothing and your own towel to help us reduce paper towel waste.

Intermediate/advanced students may be asked to provide additional tools or supplies. Instructors will provide that information before the class begins or at the first class.

  • Clay

    25 lbs of clay, and glazing and firing fees are included with class registration. Additional clay may be purchased only if the instructor has approved this and kiln space is available. Cost of a second 25lb bag is $30-40 depending on the type of clay, and a third is $40-60. NO outside clay is permitted and no student may use more than 75lbs in one 8-week session.

  • Firing

    All pots will be bisqued and glazes will be provided. Firings vary depending upon the class, but at least one firing will occur at the end of the class to fire finished pieces. Some instructors will also schedule a mid-session firing.

  • Open Lab Practice Sessions

    Class registration includes access to Open Lab practice sessions. These typically take place Monday evenings, Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings but are subject to change. Check the Class Calendar for specific times.

  • COVID-19

    We follow the current guidelines for Boulder County.
    If social distancing must be reinstated, practice times may be curtailed to accommodate safety procedures.
