We have updated our pandemic protocols because of the new health recommendations from the CDC and local health officials guidance on Cape Cod, as well as for the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff and teachers.

Intermediate and higher level class. You should have wheel skills or at least a few years of handbuilding if you want to join this class. Hollis has been making pots on the wheel (mostly) for the past 30 years. In his personal work he concentrates on drinking vessels – tea bowls, mugs, pitchers, tea pots – but in this class he will work with you on whatever is your particular favorite form. You can expect your skills to grow, and to have fun with your teacher and the other students. This will NOT be a class for beginners.

We will also work on multiple types of Japanese-inspired tea bowls, the kind of cup Hollis has been making for years.

Refund policy:

Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class. Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no makeups for missed classes. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class or workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.

If Falmouth Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will be closed and the missed classes will be rescheduled.




Fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glaze and firing fee. A tool kit may be purchased for $20. Open studio time, which is scheduled several times throughout the week, is available at no extra charge.
