We will make a bowl, plate, and mug or drinking vessel from scratch. I will teach you hand pressing and slab techniques. You will understand the stages of clay along with patterns and design will be discussed. You will be assisted throughout the whole process and encouraged. You can use my collection of over 200 handmade pattern stamps and letters to personalize your work or to add a favorite phrase. We will be producing all three pieces in one sitting. The work won't be ready to take home right away. I will fire it and glaze it the desired colors. All finished ceramic ware is oven safe, microwavable and dishwasher safe. The work will be ready for pick up in 21 days. If you can't pick your work up and need it shipped, I will have a mailing label readyfor you to fill out after class. We can calculate your works shipping rate that night using my computer and shipping estimator.

Hello! I am Jenny Champlin, I have been a legit artist and arts and crafts teacher for the past 25 years. I have an MFA in art with an emphasis in ceramics. I have founded and ran art camps, clay camps, and have taught ceramics to ages 4-84. I have my very own crafting and ceramic studio RIGHT OFF the MAX line in Hillsboro. I just made a 6-foot wide nest that is my teaching table! My studio is a magical space, full of inspiration, crazy positive energy, and will delight all who enter. Come join me for an unforgettable experience!
My studio is located on the second floor. We have an elevator and it is wheelchair accessible. Studio #7 Most of you will enter using the double front doors. Walk all the way down the hall. Up the stairs, turn right, and my studio is on the right closer to the skylight.
