Beginners Pottery Lesson with The Owner of Peach Tree Pottery
Learn how to throw a pot in one lesson! This is a great option for those wanting to give pottery a try. Students make the piece of their choice on the wheel, and Peach Tree trims, fires, and glazes it for you. Includes instruction, clay, use of tools, kiln space, and glazing.
I was introduced to pottery in high school and got hooked instantly. There was something about clay’s tangibility that was so appealing – I could get lost for hours whether handbuilding or on the wheel. In college, I decided to make art my focus, graduating from Michigan State University (Go, Green!) with a BFA in Studio Art. Since my days at MSU, I’ve worked a variety of art and marketing jobs, lived in both metro Detroit and Norfolk, Virginia, and completed a 200-hour training with YogaWorks. While I’ll always be a Midwest girl at heart, the west coast had been calling my name for a while. So at the end of 2012, I packed up my car and dog and ended up in LA. Being surrounded by the passionate, generous artists that show up each day at Peach Tree Pottery is a dream come true. I have the utmost gratitude to be involved in continuing what my Aunt Linda created, as a teacher and now as the studio’s owner. Whether you have a specific project in mind, want to geek out over glazes, or need to let go of the day, I’d love to invite you to our amazing space and create together.
