All lessons are private so it’s one on one. I find that when students are taught privately they learn far more quickly because the teacher’s attention is solely on the student. Due to COVID-19, all students must wear a mask. N95 masks double as a dust mask.
What type of classes are offered?
The syllabus I created includes hand building, an introduction to the potter’s wheel, and lessons in decorating and glazing your pieces. Hand building techniques to begin your journey in pottery are essential to a well rounded clay education. Hand built forms include creating pottery using slabs and coils. Also balls of clay can be formed into pots by pinching the clay. Most students remark on how soothing and calming it is to build pottery by hand. In fact, it is the method I use most in my studio.
The cost of the first lesson is $75 for 2 hours. This will serve as an introduction to working with clay and there is no obligation to continue. If you decide to commit to regularly scheduled sessions, the cost is $100 per 2 hours. This fee includes all materials (clay, glazes, oxides, etc.) and firing of your work that is created in my studio.
My studio is located in Mayo, QC, about 20 minutes from Buckingham and about 45 minutes downtown Ottawa.
*NOTE* There is no public transportation to Mayo. You must drive or have someone drive you to and from your lessons.

I am open to trading my teaching expertise for something you may have that I would like, for example, organic vegetables, organic free range chicken and/or beef and/or pork and /or eggs, massage therapy, yoga lessons. If you think you can provide something of interest to me in trade for pottery lessons, please call so we can discuss it.
