Pottery Class: Magnificent Mug-Making

Make your very own custom mug by hand in this exciting pottery class! With Instructor Jennifer as your helpful, encouraging guide, you'll learn all you need to know to create a beautiful, functional mug totally from scratch.


You'll learn how to work with clay using hand pressing and slab techniques and you'll get to experiment with patterns and design as Instructor Jennifer guides you. You can even choose from over 200 pattern stamps to create a unique, personal flair to your creation. After class, Instructor Jennifer will glaze and fire your mug for you free of charge (you'll get to select from 9 colors), and your completed product will be ready for pickup in just 3 weeks!


Please note:

  • Since this is a hands-on class, it is not recommended to bring food or drink.
  • If you are unable to pick up your mug when it is ready, Instructor Jennifer will ship it to you for an appropriate fee.

Jenny's mug class was wonderful! My partner and I did it as a date and had a blast. She does a good job at making the creative process fun and accessible for artists and for people who are new to creating and using clay. Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed my visit. I wore my mask and Jenny immediately put hers on to match my unspoken preference. Jenny explained and showed me what my options were, how I would work with the clay and then let me practice multiple options while making suggestions. I really enjoyed this experience and would do it again without hesitation. Jenny is engaging and funny and a great host. I also enjoyed the location in Hillsboro and Jenny provided some recommendations for me after leaving her studio since I am only visiting Portland.
