Welcome to Classes and Workshops 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, and two electric kilns.
Class size is limited to five students per class, so that plenty of attention is given to each student. Workshops are offered mostly in summer. Ten week classes are offered three times a year… Winter, Spring, and Fall.

A materials fee of $40 is due the first day of class. The materials fee includes: 25 lbs of porcelain clay, all tools, glazes, and kiln firings. The only thing you need to bring is an apron or a towel.

Students taking Friends Day Workshops need to give 24 hr. notice if they need to cancel for any reason and may reschedule. No Shows will be charged for the session.

Students taking classes may not reschedule due to illness etc., but can make up the class time they missed when the studio is free… (you may come in for a couple of hours on an open evening for wheel time practice).

Why should I take a pottery class with Lucy

Learning the art of making handmade pottery is a skill that is both therapeutic for the mind and nourishing to the soul. Weekly classes are a welcoming time for you to relax and explore your creative side.

You’ll also have a lot of fun! What is better than spending time on something you enjoy in a peaceful, creative and inspiring and fun environment? Taking a pottery class is making a commitment to you, and to art, and the continuation of a wonderful craft and skill.

When you take a class with Lucy you are learning the craft from a potter who has made her full time living making pottery since 2001. With Lucy’s 30+ years of teaching pottery you will experience her knowledge and ability to explain ways and methods to make this difficult pottery process a little easier. As you advance in the pottery making process Lucy will always be present to assist you on your creative journey.
