Georgies Portland store offers clay classes, Kiln Firing classes, as well as 3 progressive Teacher Training Clay classes. These Teacher classes are specifically designed for our Public & Private School Teachers that purchase clay from us and promote working with clay in their schools. For now, the Eugene store is only offering Kiln Firing classes.

For most of Georgies' employees and instructors, clay and its many facets are a lifetime pursuit. There are endless ways to form the clay and decorate the surface. Explore form, function, texture, color, and design. An eight week class is a freckle in time: it may be something you want to explore further ... but it won't be enough time to become a master potter or make all your Christmas presents if you have never worked in clay before. Building your skills takes time and lots of practice, and this is a great place to start your journey!

Open studio times are uninstructed, but valuable
in developing the skills you are learning in your class.


The FINE PRINT for eight-week clay classes:
At the time of registration for our clay classes we request a $50 non refundable deposit and a credit card number to hold your reservation. The $50 deposit will NOT be refunded if you cancel your registration, but will be applied when you pay the rest of your class fee; $50 + $300 = $350 (or for the 7 week classes, $50 + $275 = $325).

If you need a registration confirmation e-mail, please request one when signing up for the class. We charge your non refundable deposit the day you sign up and bill the remainder of the class one week before the first class session. If you choose to pay by cash or check, please arrange payment on the day that credit cards will be charged out with a Georgie’s phone staff (please get a name of person you talked to at Georgie’s if you choose to pay by cash). If we do not receive your cash payment by the time and date payment is due you will automatically be cancelled out of the class. Call or email us as soon as possible if you have to cancel your registration. If you cancel after the deadline of final payment, we are unable to refund your entire class registration.

The fee for our clay classes includes Georgies classroom clay, use of Georgies glazes on your projects, 5 hours of open studio time to practice between class sessions (when there is not another class using the studio space and during store hours), and firing your classroom work. Cone 06 lowfire clays are NOT allowed in our classroom area for any reason. No other clay/glaze is allowed in the classroom – we provide everything.

Once the class has started,: there are no cancellations (no refunds for your class fee), switching classes (i.e. moving from Monday AM to Tuesday AM), transferring class fee to another session, no make up classes or open studio make up time (if you miss a class, you miss a class and same with open studio), no refunds for missed classes.

If you have any questions regarding the fine print or during your 8 week session or any questions at all: please e-mail
