My classes are taught six people at a time. I cherish the small group dynamics. All classes offered at YUNOMI are wheel throwing classes since that's my passion.
The best way to sign up is to get on the email list for class notifications. You can email me from the Contact page. I apologize ahead of time that these classes fill up almost immediately. The night class is harder to get in than the morning class. Don't get discouraged if you can't get in the first time. I do encourage people to get on the waitlist. Cancellations happen especially at the last minute. I always say where there's a will, there's a way.
Each class begins with a short mindfulness meditation. I trained in meditation and taught it for many years. It has informed my path as an artist. It's helpful to make a break from the busy day and focus 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 $20.
#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.
