All classes offered at YUNOMI are wheel throwing classes. Please contact me to sign up. Each class is limited to six, and often fill up fast so early registration is recommended. A $50 deposit is required. If you are interested, you can get on the e-mail list and be notified as soon as the new schedules come out.
Each class begins with a short mindfulness meditation. This is a natural because I taught meditation for many years. It makes a break from the busy day and focuses the mind in the present moment. People come to feel the difference in the quality of their work after meditating.

Material list for the pottery class:
We start throwing in the first class. Please wear something that's comfortable and you don’t mind getting dirty. You might designate some old clothes to be pottery clothes. Following is a list of things you will need. You can purchase #1 and #2 at the studio on the first day of the class.
#1 Pottery tool kit: Available at the studio for $10. It will have a wood tool, sponge, trimming tool, wire, and a needle tool. A quart size yogurt container works well to put your tools in.
#2 Cone 6 clay (one 25 lb. bag): Available at the studio also for $15.
#3 Towels: Small to medium sized rags would be great.
#4 Apron: This is a good idea for most people.
Note: It’s a good idea to have short fingernails. Also, rings can get in the way of throwing. You might want to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
