I’m determined to keep students protected while working in my pottery studio. Regarding the upcoming 2022 FALL SESSION (Sept-Nov 2022), please be prepared to show proof of full COVID vaccination and to wear a mouth/nose mask during class. If either of these are deal breakers for you then I respectfully request that you not register for the fall session. I plan on doing all I can to keep my small home studio a safe haven for all my students, for me, my family, and not for COVID. I look forward to welcoming returning and new students to getting their hands in clay! Check this site for current info on COVID in King County.

SUMMER at Barbara Dunshee Pottery:

While I won’t be holding a 9 week group session this summer I will be teaching private lessons as my studio schedule allows. The next group session will start on September 19th, 2022.

2022 FALL Pottery Classes!

9 weeks + Final Saturday Party, small group classes in wheel throwing and hand-building. Starting week of Sept 19th, 2022 and ending with a Final All Classes Party on Saturday, Nov 19th, 2022, 1pm-4pm.

Open Registration starts Monday, August 15th

Barbara offers a fun, informal, intimate ceramic learning experience from her Seattle studio on E. Capitol Hill (limited enrollment).

In addition to 9 week group pottery classes, Barbara offers private pottery lessons, team building and workshops.

“Barbara’s pottery class is like a very good Tapas restaurant that is vibrant, full of surprises, and will bring you back again and again. Intrigued by her artwork, I signed up for her class a year ago and have since become one of many loyal students of hers. As a slow learner myself, she has been amazingly patient and never shows any sign of irritation. Barbara is always dependable, helpful with suggestions, and overflows with artistic ideas. She is truly the best pottery instructor in this area.”
