Welcome to James Lemon's Workshops, an adorable and warm destination for ceramics enthusiasts seeking an exceptional learning experience but also just a good time. Nice vibes, nice people, that kind of thing. James has been taking workshops at his studio for the last 6 years and is excited to welcome people back to the space after some recent major projects.
James, a skilled artist with his roots planted firmly production pottery with 8 years of experience in wheel throwing. He approaches of this traditional and sometimes non-traditional techniques guiding you through the captivating process of shaping clay on the potter's wheel. You'll make vessels of remarkable beauty, that you can then sell for thousands (dependant on your skill level).
A key feature of these workshops is that they cater to students of all levels. From beginners taking their first steps into the world of ceramics to intermediates seeking to refine their skills. We believe in creating a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone can live, laugh and learn. Express their creativity for all social media to see.
Another unique feature these workshops is that class sizes are small, with no more than 6 on the wheel at a time. People often require a lot of guidance in the beginning which isn't always received in a class of 12+. This intimate setting allows for individual attention, fostering both a relaxed and focused atmosphere where you can fully immerse yourself in the material. 6 is a godly number.
All the necessary materials will be provided, including clay, tools, glaze, and firing. We've got you covered from start to finish. Optionally, you can opt out of or firing service and book in with a glaze class at a later date to get the full picture of production. If this is of interest, add one of these to your cart too GLAZE WORKSHOP.
