What you'll do

I or another member on my team will give you a tour around the studio, then a brief explanation of the three steps in making a piece of pottery followed by a lesson on the potters wheel. I will lead you through all of the steps you will need to know in order to be successful on the wheel. You will then have a little flexible time to practice your new skills. If you would like to keep the item that you make, we can trim it, glaze it, and and fire it and send it to you by mail add an additional cost of $100.
Other things to note-
No pottery experience is required. It also doesn’t matter if you are left or right handed. Please message me so that we can set up a time that is good for both of our schedules.

I have been studing ceramics for 35 years and have been teaching for 15. I run a ceramics business out of my home in Seattle Washington. My business is called Sunset Hills Ceramics. I have a website www.Sunsethillceramics.com. It makes me very happy to share how to make ceramic items on the ceramics wheel with airbnb guests.

This was such a delightful experience. Elizabeth is very experienced and knows her craft well. She encouraged me to work on what I wanted and I felt so inspired and accomplished. I recommend this experience to anyone :)

Elizabeth was a very sweet and fun host that indulge us on every sillyrequest we made during the pottery class. Definitely left the class interested exploring pottery as a hobby.

We decided to schedule this during our vacation to Seattle. Elizabeth was very welcoming and knowledgeable! We had such a great time and would recommend this to anyone who wants to try something new.

Elizabeth’s a great artist, however it would have been nice if we actually got to meet and learn from her. Her assistant was skillful, but unprepared for the lesson. 2/3 of the time was taken up by chat about our trip and the studio tour. We didn’t get much time on the potters wheel, and even got cut off early. I think the experience would have been better if Elizabeth and her partner had communicated ahead of time.

We had a lovely time with Elizabeth! We each created our own pottery. She was very patient with some of us who are newbies. I booked this for a private group for myself and my 14-year old nieces. We all had a lovely time! I never would have found this if not for Airbnb - thank you!!! A great time for a unique outing while touring Seattle. Loved and highly recommend!!
