Event description

Description

Looking for a fun experience in Santa Fe? How about playing in the mud with a local ceramic artist! The cost includes a two-hour class complete with libations and all materials, clay, glazes, firing, and shipping your works of art to you when they're complete. Classes are lubricated with intoxicants from Tumbleroot Brewery and Distillery, and 100% of net proceeds go to our non-profit beneficiaries.

Our goal in offering pottery “experiences” is to make visitors feel like they’re at home, like they're locals here in Santa Fe regardless of where they're from. Learning to make pottery with a local artist is something the traditional tourist wouldn't have an opportunity to experience, but we know that visitors to Santa Fe are looking for an interactive and immersive vacation, not just a passive sightseeing visit, and we’re excited to be part of their Santa Fe adventure.

We start each pottery class by taking students on a tour of our little pottery studio. Paseo Pottery is housed inside a rustic little adobe built in the early 1900s in the railyard district of Santa Fe and has been part of the Santa Fe art scene for nearly thirty years. The space includes both a working ceramics studio and a retail gallery. In the studio, artists feverishly design and create—think muddy mayhem: whirling wheels, fiery kilns, and sundry clay-coated potting paraphernalia—while in the gallery finished pieces are displayed beneath the soft glow of farmhouse chandeliers.

Students will learn about the process of making pottery, starting with creating their individual works of art today during class, through how we will then take their pieces through the rest of the process: trimming, drying, bisquing, glazing, firing, etc. During the class, each student will have an opportunity to make two or three pieces and can either chose to throw on the wheel—or perhaps a little of both. At the end of the class, students choose a glaze color for each piece. Then we handle the rest and ship finished pottery to students when it’s fresh out of the kiln.
