Pottery classes

Mermaid Springs Pottery is now fully vaccinated! As of June 19th, I will be open for private lessons, semi-private lessons, and small classes. You must be fully vaccinated too. Contact Lisa to set up a class at or 519-742-3664. 


Classes are 10 week sessions.

Classes are held at my home studio in Doon Village. Each student has their own potter’s wheel. Classes are offered in small class sizes, usually 7 students, with a lot of one on one instruction. Classes are open to beginner through advanced levels.

We begin by learning to make bowls, and then progress to make mugs, plates, vases, candle holders, goblets, etc. I also teach how to decorate pots by hand sculpting figures, such as mermaids, cats, or birds. I have a wide selection of glazes which my students enjoy using. My classes are a warm, supportive environment where I get to know students on an individual basis. I create a fun evening for all. Many students continue taking classes for several sessions, working on their own unique projects. Many former students are now selling pottery and even teaching classes themselves.
