Events and Workshops

  • Private Throwing Class (Single or Couples) 

1.5 hours
$150 for 1 person
$200 for 2 people 

You will have the opportunity to learn to throw out of Janna's private studio in Barrio Logan.  Classes are limited and I will open them up a month in advance.

In this class you will learn how to:

  • prepare your clay
  • center and cone your piece
  • pull walls that will create your masterpiece! 

Typically people can make 2-4 pieces in a class.

Pottery making is a long process, therefore once you make your pieces you will leave them to dry in the studio and Janna will glaze and fire them for you. You will have your choice of glaze color which we can decide on at the end of your class.  The drying and firing process can take around 3 weeks. You will be contacted once your pieces are ready to go home! 

*A non-refundable deposit of $50 will be requested at the time of booking and will be deducted from the final payment to be made at the time of your class.

In these hand-building workshops, you will learn a 4,000 year old practice of building pottery by what is called coil building. You will have access to clay, tools, and glaze to create your own coiled pieces of your choice, whether that's a teacup, bowl or vase. The form you create is up to you!

In this 2 hour class, Janna of isiko will instruct and guide you through the process of creating your work. Ceramics is a time consuming art, therefore, once you finish your pieces they will be left to dry and fired in Janna's studio where you will be able to pick up your 2 pieces when ready! In addition, our Communal cafe will be serving charcuterie boards and wine for each of our guests.
Janna (she/her) runs an online marketplace called isiko. isiko aims to preserve, share and support traditional artisans from around the world. 
“I am inspired by nature and the natural elements of our earth. I believe as humans we are connected through our art and I love to learn and explore this within my own art. “ - Janna
isiko is the eSwatini word that means art, tradition and culture and I try to represent this in all that I create, source and share.
