Testimonials:

“My daughter had such a fun week with you – she can’t wait to come back to the studio next week! At dinner on Wednesday evening she said, ‘I am so happy I have pottery tomorrow. Kathryn is an amazing teacher mom and fun too.’ She has been asking to do some pottery for over a year now – so thank you!”

“My son came home on Tuesday as about the happiest I’ve ever seen him. Her rarely says “I had a GREAT day” when I ask…but he did then. He mentioned that he threw his first plate, which he was excited about, and then talked about his hand-building. Of course, I can’t remember the elaborate details he went through!”

“I wanted to let you know how much Nathaniel is enjoying pottery. We were unsure what he would think about it but he counts the days until his next class. He is already asking to take more classes with you.”

“Congratulations on your new place and expanding program. But what really matters, at least for us, is your wonderful teaching, care and concern for your students. Thanks again.”

TEACH YOUR OWN CLASS!

CyclePottery is fortunate to have several talented and expert potters working on their own professional work in addition to teaching workshops and classes and open studio demonstrations.

Kathryn welcomes other artists to use her studio for teaching their own classes, whether it be a series of classes or just a one day workshop.  Each instructor will negotiate and contract an hourly pay with Kathryn.
