“This weekend pop-up is a wonderful opportunity for residents and visitors to shop local and purchase hand-crafted items directly from our student artists,” says Julie Richard, CEO of Sedona Arts Center. “The work is not only beautiful but usable and makes the perfect gift.”

SAC’s year-round courses include Ceramics for All Levels, Hand Building Ceramics and Pottery Wheel for Beginners and are taught by internationally renowned instructors Dennis Ott, Neil Kennedy and Laura Howe. Weekend workshops and multi-week classes teach beginning to advanced students hand building, throwing, firing and clay and glaze formulation in addition to traditional and contemporary techniques.

“Our instructors are top notch and take great pride in preparing students to become skilled studio artists and potters,” says Richard. “The pieces in this show and sale reflect their talent as master teachers.”
