Local potter Bill Van Guilder, whose works are featured in collections world-wide, founded the school in 2000. Classes, available for adults and teenagers, offer a wide variety of ceramics experiences—both wheel-thrown and hand-built. The results yield many differing styles of functional and decorative pottery.
