All classes offered at YUNOMI are wheel throwing classes. The best way to sign up is to get on the email list for class notifications. I apologise ahead of time that these classes can fill up almost immediately after the class announcements go out. The night class is harder to get in than the morning class. Each class is limited to six. $50 deposit is required.
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.
