Afternoon classes are for children 4 to 6 years old.
Children learn hand-building techniques such as coiling, slab
building, pinch pots, as well as carving, decorating, and glazing
techniques. Classes are small enough that individual interests can
An evening class for adults explores hand-building as
well as throwing techniques. Classes will teach clay and glaze
techniques as well as allow for personal interests and expression
Sasha teaches workshops throughout the year that
coincide with the Jewish holidays. For younger children, the
workshop invites parent and child to work together collaboratively.
Basic 2-hour workshops work well for families, allowing each member
to make one ceramic piece that is simple, functional, and beautiful.
More advanced offerings allow participants (age 8 and above) to make
more than one piece and learn special techniques; these can be
designed in 3-4 hour segments.
Judaica Workshops include:
