Pottery Northwest Classes
Classes at Pottery Northwest offer an opportunity to work with excellent instructors and facilities. Perhaps just as important is the extensive studio time available to someone enrolled in our classes. We like to see our students in the studio, and it is honestly the best way to make progress. Our curriculum continues to evolve, and each session brings new choices as well as a core group of classes to meet the needs of students at every level.
Winter classes begin January 6, 2014.
Policies, Fees, Responsibilities, ...
Registration for classes will be on a first-come-first-served basis online (via PayPal), by mail or in-person.
No class registration will be handled by phone.
If you do not wish to register online, you may mail in the completed registration form or register in person. Please print and fill out the registration form, completely, with a check for the exact amount. Do not mail cash. Office hours are 10 am - 5 pm, Tuesday through Friday.
Registration requests will be processed in the order received. You will be notified only if you do not secure placement in the class or classes of your choice. When a class fills we create a waiting list. If there is enough interest we may create a second section.
Payment in full by check, cash, credit card, or PayPal is due with registration. Registration fees will cover firing and 25# of clay. Recycling used clay is encouraged. Additional clay may be purchased at $15 per bag. Surcharges may apply for specialized clay bodies identified in class descriptions.
If cancellation is less than two weeks prior to first class, $50 will be withheld from refunds. After the first class, no fees are refundable. Fees paid for the current session cannot be transferred as payment for the next class session. We reserve the right to cancel classes if the minimum enrollment is not reached; full tuition will be refunded.
As Pottery Northwest attempts to create a professional learning situation, class members are expected to participate in the loading, unloading, and firing of class kilns under the guidance of class instructors, and in studio maintenance and cleanup. Further, in keeping with the educational focus, student use of studio facilities to produce goods for commercial sale is not acceptable. Pottery-making can be a potentially hazardous activity. It is the responsibility of every student to exercise caution at all times within the Pottery.
One of the best features of classes at Pottery Northwest is the extensive practice time available to students. If there is not another class or workshop in session, with very few exceptions, you are welcome to work in the studio from 10 am until 10 pm. We look forward to seeing you get dirty here!
