Welcome to the studio at Fine Field Pottery. Here, the goal is to offer everyone an opportunity to get their hands dirty and have a new experience or refine a previous enjoyment.

A class at FFP will strive to help you create a new creation out of clay that you will be able to take home with you and show off to your friends and family. There are opportunities to throw on an electric wheel (and for the daring, kick wheel), to hand build creations from coils and slabs, and to learn the various techniques of glazing.  A class at FFP will also teach studio etiquette in a safe and encouraging atmosphere.

There are several options available when considering what class to take.
