About the class

Explore the whimsical world of texture and surface design with Lynn Wood (the true Pottery Texture Queen!)  as she instructs you on every step of the process from structure, aesthetics, function, and more. In this 8 week class, join Lynn Wood in working with soft slabs to create a variety of fun and functional slab, and oh yes,  textured pottery. Projects will include some unique vases and covered forms. Make some new items for yourself and these will make great gifts as well. Tips, techniques and laughs included.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
