Ceramics Program at The Centre of Elgin
We have various levels of ceramic classes and workshops for individuals, youth, and families. Our classes include all tools, firing, glaze and clay. Classes are for beginner students who want to be project specific or for those who want to work independent. All classes will focus on teaching the basics to first time potters who want to learn slab/coil and wheel techniques. We have a large studio with 8 potter’s wheels, slab roller, glaze room and kiln. Our highly trained and experienced instructors take pride in educating and enhancing the lives of others through the arts.
