What you'll do

JenMolo Pottery studio is offering a wheel throwing lesson for true beginners. I will teach you how to create clay pots on a potters wheel. Pottery studio is located in a converted shed in my backyard in rural Black Hawk, CO.
I will provide demonstration then each person will have time to create their own ceramic pot on the pottery wheel.
Class is for 90 minutes and is best experienced with two participants, so please sign up with a partner. Big discount when booking a 2 person class! Class will include the clay (up to 5lbs). As clay takes time to dry, guests will be able to pick the glaze color that they want for their pots, and I will glaze the pieces. Class includes 1 pot each that I will mail to you. If you want to keep additional pots, they will be available for $10 each if shipped or free if you want to come back to pick up all the pots you make.

Classes will only be available for 2 guests. Guests must be from the same household, friends, or family.

No previous ceramic knowledge is necessary. Most people will be able to understand the concepts on the first try, but no matter if you have a successful throw session or not, you will get one pot each to pick up.

Masks are required in the studio at this time. Message me if you are interested in booking but don’t see a time/day that will work for you.

My passion for creating ceramics started four years ago, but as soon as I touched clay I was instantly obsessed. I worked in a shared studio space in Black Hawk, until I recently converted one of my sheds/cabins into a studio space for myself. I have been teaching friends how to throw and I have had surprisingly good results. Turns out I'm a good teacher! I would love to share my experience with you and create a magical artistic day for you!

We really enjoyed the class! Jen made sure her instructions were easy to follow and her demonstration at the beginning was helpful. Take this class if you’ve always been interested in using a pottery wheel! It’s nice to have that gratification of making something new on your own.

Jen was a great teacher. As someone new to pottery it was great having someone who knows a variety of techniques to talk you through as you are throwing. Love the outdoor shed, it was a great experience all around.

We had such a wonderful time with Jen! She was so patient and did a great job explaining each step of the process. We were allowed to make 3 items, and she guided them through us. The location was cozy and quaint! We would recommend Jen to anyone! :)

She was great! Showed you the techniques before hand, and then helped guide you while doing it on your own. We had an amazing time and would 100% come back again.

This was a really fun experience for us and we are looking forward to doing it again. Jen was an excellent teacher. We were able to both create 2 pots and look forward to bringing them home.
