Connie Helke

Covers cost of materials for this class. Bring and pay directly to instructor.

Skill Level: No experience needed

Connie Helke is amazing and generous, and we love her!  Because of high interest, she has agreed to hold another class at her studio, to benefit Marine Mills Folk School!  Your class fee will go 100% to supporting our new folk school, as Connie is donating her time.

Be one of the lucky few to spend an afternoon with Connie, learning to create a functional mug complete with handle.  You will learn to roll out a slab of white stoneware clay, cut, add texture and then form it into a mug with handle.  The class will take place at Connie’s studio and will be limited to only 4 adult students, so register soon!

Students will return for an hour in 3-4 weeks, date to be mutually agreed upon, to glaze their mugs after they have been dried and bisque-fired.  After glazing mugs will be fired in Connie’s kiln once again to create a mug that is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.


Students bring:

  • Apron or large shirt
  • 3 paper grocery bags to keep mug from sticking in to table


General Age Policy:
All classes are for adults (18+) unless otherwise noted.

Class Minimums:
Be aware we may cancel 5 days before class date if a minimum number of registrations not reached. We work to balance teachers' need to plan for a class with students' busy schedules -- not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!

Read all of our school policies.
