Mill Valley Potter’s Studio offers adult classes, after-school youth classes, parent/child classes, private lessons and parties, and a variety of workshops. Most adult classes include up to 3 hours of open studio time weekly to practice outside of class.
Don’t worry, if you miss a class, you can make it up on another day of the same week—but remember to notify your instructor.
Most classes are open studio style to accommodate all levels. Instructors perform weekly demonstrations for the class and work with each student to help develop their personal style and enhance their skills.
The Studio is located at GROW Art & Garden Education Center. GROW features event space for hire, and three independent businesses including, Mill Valley Potter’s Studio, The Little Art Studio, and California Native Plant Nursery.
