Into oza kuyenza

We will start with some of the interesting history of the studio space. Then I will get you situated on the wheel and show you how to properly secure your lump of clay. After the clay is secured we start the wheel spinning nice and fast. I will show you how to center the clay which is a very important (and frustrating) stage of making pottery on the wheel. After we successfully center the clay, you will explore how the clay moves and reacts to your touch. We will work to form a simple shape such as a bowl or cup. To finish off we will do some clean up of the form and remove the piece from the wheel in order to start experimenting with the next piece. You can expect to get to practice with around 6 lumps of clay (more if you are ambitious) and most people will create 2-3 pieces by the end of the session.

Pieces will be professionally finished, fired, and glazed after the experience. This process takes at least 3 weeks. After the pieces are finished you can pickup in the studio or they can be shipped. Shipping costs are paid by the guest.
Other things to note
Come wearing clothes that you don't mind getting messy. We will provide aprons. If you have long hair plan to have a hair tie or a way to secure your hair back. Trim long nails if you are able.

Hello! I absolutely love working in clay and have spent the last 2 years teaching ceramics at a community art program in downtown San Francisco. Previous to teaching wheel throwing and sculpting, I worked at a ceramic supplier where I gained immense knowledge on everything to do with Ceramics! Now I am following my dream of having a home studio and gallery space. I would love nothing more than welcoming curious and adventurous folks in to my studio to learn the joys of working in clay. My studio is located on the ground level of a beautiful Victorian built in the late 1800's!

Uza kube uphi

We will be in the ground level studio and gallery of a Victorian house. The space was a club house of some kind for the previous owners and they would hold various events in the space in the early 1900s. We are in the process of researching more about what they were exactly doing. We found artifacts and photos from that time and we know they referred to their group as X?X. Which is the inspiration for the current name of studio and gallery space.

Ifumene 4.97 kweziyi- 5 kwizimvo eziyi- 350.

The pottery class exceeded our expectations! Marieke gave us the history of the space and a wonderful demonstration of the pottery basics and then let us dive right into the hands on work! She was super helpful throughout the class and even though we were very new to pottery and had terrible skills, she made us feel comfortable and we had a great time!

SO FUN! Marieke is an amazing teacher - super patient, super calming presence, and a great help when you mess up your clay. ;) Very cool story behind her space, as well. Def returning.

The host was super nice, friendly and informative. She was really helpful and she added her own personal hx of the house as a personal touch to the event. We definitely will be doin another event with her soon!

Marieke was excellent! The workshop was so fun for our family and everyone had an amazing experience. Definitely recommended for private hire if you are celebrating a special occasion… thank you again Marieke!

Was looking for an activity to do together with my 13yo nieces -- something to get their hands dirty, connect to the earth and creativity. Marieke's experience fit the bill, and we all were completely satisfied with the experience. A cool spot, both in history and location. We made a day of it and had dinner in The Mission neighborhood beforehand. Good value.
