Our studio provides the comfort and energy you'll need to get those creative juices flowing! You can explore creative ways to incorporate functional and decorative pottery into your life by building Tiles, Home Accents or Dishes. And if you're having trouble thinking about what to make, we'll help you there too! We welcome everyone --novice & expert.
Firuse generally teaches two Elderhostel, Colored clay workshops each year in late winter and early Spring. Please read the Elderhostel newspaper to learn about her future workshops. The classes range in size from 8-14 and the participants stay in a Sedona motel and are bussed to Firuse's home each day for instruction. Classes on Monday and Wednesday are from 9 AM to 4:30 PM with a bag lunch provided by the motel. On Tuesday and Thursday classes are from 9 AM until 1 PM with a bag lunch before an afternoon of sightseeing. Digital pictures of the students and their work are taken during the workshop and posted on Firuse's website at www.firuse.com.The final class is from 9 AM until 1 PM on Friday followed by a 'show and tell' at the motel in the evening during which the digital pictures are displayed on a TV. Each participant generally creates 6-10 ceramic pieces which Firuse fires and glazes during the subsequent two weeks. The ceramics are carefully wrapped and boxed and each student is notified of the cost of shipping after which the boxes are shipped via Federal Express.
