When you come for a retreat it's all about you and your interests. We can customize for your interests. You can come for as little as an evening or afternoon (2-3 hours) and try your hand at throwing or hand building your own pot or decorating and glazing a bisqued pre-made pot. After a quick tour and introductions we dive right in. First step is for us to throw the first pot together. You get a chance to be hands on for each step along the way, getting the opportunity to feel the clay and understand better what it is to throw a pot. Once we've made our joint pot, each person in the party gets a chance to sit at their own wheel and throw a pot themselves. I'm there to help, and you've had a bit of practice with the joint pot, and now it's time for you to have the fun of throwing your own pot. Next you get a chance to decorate and glaze a mug or bowl I've previously throwed and bisqued (fired once in the kiln so it's ready for glazing). I'll finish the process (firing the pots) and we'll ship you the finished creations within a few weeks of your stay. You pay shipping costs or of course you can drop back in and pick them up. You can arrange to stay at our bunkie (Water's Edge) listed on airbnb, or stay in town (20 minutes away) at a local B andB or motel if you need accommodation.
We began potting a few years before we retired and fell in love with it. We've been in our own private studio on the lake for over 10 years. It is the most relaxing, creative, and just plain fun hobby you can find and we love sharing it with others. Whether its buying our functional, one of kind pottery or staying with us for a few hours or maybe even a whole week getting a chance to go through the creative process yourself, you'll leave with a smile. Come and visit us, we'd love to show you around.
For this experience we provide all the tools and equipment you’ll need.
We live year round on beautiful long lake with our dog Max (an adorable little Shorkie). We built our own 2 storey pottery studio next door. It's less than 100 feet to the lake with a wonderful upper deck to relax when you're taking a break. Tracy, my partner, loves light so we have lots of windows and skylights. It's a wonderful, airy, creative space with all the tools you'll need to enjoy an experience of a lifetime.
