The Pottery Studio at Maryland Hall

Take a look at our Spring class offerings for Ceramics. Our Summer classes are also available for registration.

The Maryland Hall Pottery Studio offers an atmosphere of camaraderie and relaxation where more than 70 students of all ages, from young adults to retirees, come together to explore this fascinating and ever changing media. 

Handbuilding class with Laura Switkes

The Pottery Studio recently expanded and now has a fully furnished handbuilding room, a throwing room with 14 wheels, a glazing room, and a kiln room with 3 kilns.

Classes and workshops include wheel throwing, handbuilding, sculpture, and glazing techniques. Many of these different approaches intersect, forming one of the most vibrant communities at Maryland Hall. Walking through the studios one can appreciate the diversity of the work being created.

  

Pottery Class with Renata Mastroti

To keep the program fresh and vital, Maryland Hall instructors are always exploring new techniques and approaches to clay. The energy is in the air with a constant flow of new work going in and out of the kilns.

In addition to the classes, the Pottery Department offers open studio access to currently enrolled students, where they can work independently to help solidify their skills. Students participate in an annual ‘Student Show’ in one of Maryland Hall’s galleries.

   

The Pottery Department will offer a ‘Seconds Sale’ and wheel and handbuilding demonstrations during the annual Artfest open house event on Sunday April 8 from 1:00-4:00pm.
