Welcome to Pottery Classes at Lucy Fagella Pottery.
At Lucy Fagella Pottery you will find a wonderful working environment, not only in the beautiful, light, sunny studio space, but in the supportive and positive teaching atmosphere which I create. Our classes are held in my studio space, which is equipped with five potter’s wheels, two electric kilns, and three work tables for hand building and glazing.
Class size is limited to five students per class, so that plenty of attention is given to each student. Classes are offered three times a year… Winter, Spring, and Fall.
All classes are ten weeks long, two hours per class. Included in all classes is, “on your own studio time” (practice time… pottery can be a challenge.) These two extra hours outside of class time can be taken before or after class, or late afternoons when the studio is free. So come and enjoy some time out for yourself!
