Students of all levels are welcome to sign up for HPG classes.   Each class session is ten weeks, and classes meet once a week for three hours.


Hand-building classes use coils, slabs, extruded shapes and pinch pots to construct either decorative or functional    pieces, including Ikebana containers and animal pieces.  Hand-building is an excellent introduction for first-timers to  clay, however hand building classes also offer challenges and ideas to those who prefer hand building.


Wheel classes emphasize the creation of functional pieces such as bowls, platters, plates, vases, pitchers and tea pots, as well as  decorative pieces. 

Key Information:

  • Tuition for each term is $200 ($175 for HPG members).  To be eligible to become an HPG member, you must have taken at least four  classes and have paid annual  membership dues.   Read more about membership here.

  • The cost of clay ranges between $18-35 per 25lb bag, which also includes the cost of glazes and firing. All clay used in class and in the  studio must be purchased from HPG.

  • If needed, a set of basic tools can be purchased at registration for $20. 

  • Payment will be accepted by check only, please.

  • Clay and tools must be ordered at the time of class registration. They will be ready for pick-up in the first class.

  • In addition to weekly classes, students may use the studio (at no additional charge) during open studio hours, which are generally  Monday-Sunday, 9AM - 9PM, when there is no class or workshop in session. Weekend hours may vary, so it’s best to call the studio first (941-8108) and make sure the studio is open.

  • If you are a new student, please read about our registration process prior to visiting the studio to sign up.
