Nurture Your Creativity with a Pottery Class
Deb McCunn opened Baker Creek Ceramic Studio in 2010 to offer quality classes and studio space for artists to improve their craft, develop innovative techniques and nurture their creativity. Deb teaches at Baker Creek Ceramic Studio, Whatcom Community College Community Education and Menucha Creative Arts Community in Oregon. You can find Deb's sculptures at Matzke Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture Park on Camano Island, Red Sky Gallery in Seattle, Good Earth Pottery in Fairhaven and the Walking Man Gallery in Whitefish, Montana.
Our sculpting classes will help you find your voice and build your technical skills. Our topics vary including animals, human forms, story boats and masks. Each class offers exercises to help artists find and develop their own unique vision. Technical skills students will learn include slab building, coil building, pinching and sculpting. Classes learn facial expressions and animal characteristics. Our surface treatments include colored slip, burnished terra sigillata, underglazes, glazes, metal additions, metal washes and encaustic waxes. Best of all, the supportive environment encourages students to grow as artists.
Baker Creek Ceramic Studio offers pottery classes for all levels ages 16 and up. Using the potter's wheel, students learn to make bowls and mugs in beginning throwing. Intermediate throwing students learn to make plates, pitchers, berry bowls, lidded jars and coffee pour-over cones. Advanced students get instructor support for independent projects. All students learn surface options including colored slips, underglazes, carving and glazing. Plus we offer open studio time for all students to practice on Fridays from 2 to 7 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.
Baker Creek Ceramics acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq'temish, Lummi People, and the Nuxwsa7aq, Nooksack People, who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during pottery class hours or open studio times. Open Studio sessions are Fridays 1-6:30 and Saturdays 9-3.
