Pottery Samplers

Take a one-time class with Greenwich House Pottery!

New to clay? Want to give it a try without committing to 6 or 12 weeks? Join us for an introductory class! Take a 2 hour handbuilding or wheel class. You can expect to complete one project in clay, choose a glaze and GHP will glaze and fire your piece to take home! Clay, glazing, and firing is included in the price of tuition. You will be contacted 3-6 weeks after class to collect your finished piece. These classes are intended only as an introduction for individuals who have never taken a class at GHP.

Sampler students are not eligible for studio time or drop-off firing services at Greenwich House Pottery. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Before registering, please take a moment to read the Sampler registration policies located at the bottom of this page.
