Jan-March 2021 Pottery Classes Now Available For Registration!
We will be following county guidelines for resuming classes at Phi Pottery. We will rearrange the work stations in the studio so that we can keep at least six feet of distance. Everyone will be required to wear a mask. We will be maintaining a schedule of sanitizing the studio between classes. Students are encouraged to reschedule studio time if they have symptoms that would put others at risk of infection.
I never thought I'd have to give health guidelines as an intro to pottery classes, but 2020 rules are here to stay, folks! I am confident we can still have fun and practice the art of working clay while practicing safety measures to keep one another healthy.
Our class size will be four students per class period.
I will be redistributing 50% of tuition paid as community mutual aid. In these stressful times, our government chose to only give the people $600 for a stimulus payment. If you or a loved one is in need, please reach out to me for some monies via venmo.
Monthly BLM Fundraiser
This year we have raised over $67,000 to give back to our community via the monthly fundraisers. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart--we have been directly supporting the Lavender Rights Project, and their project, the Washington Black Trans Task Force. My small idea turned into this huge endeavor, and I am honored to be able to rally the pottery lovers and pottery makers in the PNW this way. I will continue to dedicate my time and efforts to continually support Black-led organizations, and I am happy to have you along for the ride. Let's keep it up!!!
Diversity in Action
At Phi Pottery, I believe that we are cultivating a new studio practice that will benefit those who have been disenfranchised by the art world. I am dedicating five studio sessions for up to four participants a week as a BIPOC friendly space--free for BIPOC folks with no strings attached. Come, learn, make, that's the goal. You can schedule class by class, to fit your life. If you love the studio time and are able to commit to a full eight week evening session, Phi will also provide four full scholarships for BIPOC folks per class quarter. No application process, just let me know which class you'd like (preferably before they sell out) so I can reserve you a spot.
To sign up for BIPOC clay time, scroll down for the booking link! I will raise the limit of attendees starting at the end of January, however if you are signing up for yourself and a member of your home pod, please let me know and both of you may join. Thank you!
