BED & BREAKFAST Waitsfield, Vermont
Are you a potter or want to be one? Stay with us at the Wilder Farm Inn B&B and have access to our beautiful pottery studio/gallery, The Naked Potter. We have plenty of wheels, electric & raku kilns. So, why not take a break from your classroom or home studio and study with us? The studio is a salvaged 1840 post & beam that has been updated with modern conveniences and a very funky, cool style.
When: Anytime! You choose the length & course of study.
Includes: A great stay in our beautiful Vermont Bed & Breakfast, materials, firings, wheel instruction and a whole lot of fun. You choose what you want to learn....want to throw better? Fire a raku kiln? Learn about naked raku? Maybe you just need a place to experiment. You can do it here. Where else can you take time out from a hot firing & go jump in the cool, clean Mad River.
From $200/day, B&B stay included. Rates vary depending upon course of study. Contact us for more info.
Admit it, it looks easy! Now you can give it a try with our 2-3 hour introduction to the mysterious world of the potter's wheel. Get your hands dirty & see what all the fun is about. Demos along with personalized instruction get you from a lump of clay to your very own pot.
*Keep as few or as many of your pots as you like for an additional firing fee; $20 for your first pot, $10 for each additional pot. Charges include trimming, glazing, firing & shipping.
Your mother always told you not to play with fire… What did she know?
Experience the excitement of Raku. This Japanese quick-fire pottery technique will captivate your spirit and bring out the creativity in you. Glaze a hand-thrown pot and let us fire it to a red hot 1500 degrees, pull it out of the kiln and into the reduction can. Watch the flames, smell the smoke and in a few minutes see your creations. Come play with fire.
