Class Fee: $52 / $44 Studio Members + $10 Supply Fee
No Groupons or other pre-paid vouchers for this class.

You work so hard on your garden, why not add a little hidden beauty that is not only fun to have its fun for others to find. Make your very own fairy houses for the garden.  Mike will have everything you need to create very own beautiful fairy houses. In this 3 hour class, you will make up to 3 fairy houses. Once you've made your fairy houses, Mike will fire them, then you'll come back to decorate them and they'll be fired once more. Your fairy house will be safe outside for the entire gardening season ,but it is recommended that you move it in for the winter. 

Classes are small (limited to six participants) to provide indivudals the opportunity to receive special attention to work through ideas and processes. Tools are provided with three wheels, slab roller, ware boards and space to store your work before bisque firing. 

Mike also offers open studio and a six-week more in-depth course in pottery.

About the Instructor, Mike Smieja:
"Growing up, pottery was my passion. I took a break for 15+ years and my path lead me back. The clay is the boss, I am just the grateful messenger."  - Zilla 

I fell in love with making pottery in high school. I wanted to pursue it as a profession, but several people told me I would never make any money. After owning several businesses I found myself attending college for the first time when I was 32. After graduation I started a non-profit here in Minneapolis and set out to change the world. My path lead me back to a potters wheel and I fell in love again 20 years later, so I bought a wheel and a kiln and reinvented myself as a potter. I believe that my pottery embraces the changes that I have made in my life. I hope that my pots are just a vehicle to build relationships between people and places.
