Eagan Art House
This little art center on Lexington Ave offers pottery classes for adults and children. I teach an adult pottery class there on Monday nights. On Monday afternoons I teach an after school wheel-throwing class for teens.
Purple Door Potters
We are a group of potters who hold an annual sale on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday following Thanksgiving. It began in 1997 when Dianne Farber, an instructor at the Edina Art Center, invited a few potter friends to hold a pottery sale at her house. They needed a name for promoting the sale and since Dianne’s front door was purple, they chose Purple Door Potters. I’ve been a member of the group since 2001. Lately we’ve held our sale in a beautiful room overlooking Lake Calhoun at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis.
Edina Art Center
I teach a basic introduction to pottery class on Sundays. I also teach a course on firing a gas kiln a couple of times a year. I’ve been taking classes and workshops at the Edina Art Center for years. I found a supportive community of potters there who are happy to share ideas and information. It’s a great facility with opportunities to try various techniques of making and firing pots. If you’d like to try your hand at pottery, I recommend it. My pots are for sale in the gift shop.
