General Classroom/Event Space Information
We have a small classroom space at 4206 East 34th St in Minneapolis with 6 wheels, a slab roller, an electric kiln, and a variety of glazes to choose from. Regardless of what type of class you decide to take, the pieces you make will be fired at Dock 6 by our staff and be ready for you to pick up about 2-3 weeks after completion of the class.
All students should wear comfortable clothes and shoes that can get dirty. Clay washes out so your clothes will not get ruined. Tying back your hair and trimming your long fingernails are recommended.
All materials, equipment, and firings will be provided and included in the cost of your class. Just bring your lovely selves, ready to have fun!
We’d also love to hear from you about what you’re looking for! Do you have a special class/event you’d like to make happen? We’d like to know about it and we’ll do all we can accommodate your request.
About Dock 6 Pottery
Dock 6 Pottery started as a collective of 4 potters in the mid 1990s who came together to share studio expenses, ideas, and a lot of laughs. 25 years and several moves later, it’s now owned by Kerry Brooks (one of the original 4), and our little gallery has had a lovely home in the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis for over 10 years. When the space next to the gallery opened up, we decided it was an opportunity to offer classes that we couldn’t pass up.
Kerry Brooks makes primarily wheel-thrown, stoneware pots designed to be both functional and decorative. She firmly believes that pottery should be enjoyed every single day, and so strives to make her pottery as affordable and accessible as possible. She began throwing pots in Ann Arbor, MI in 1988. What started as a hobby while she was a student at the University of MI, ended up taking over her life. She now lives in Minneapolis and has been making her living as a studio potter there since 1995.
Everything sold at Dock 6 Pottery is 100% handmade and meant to be enjoyed. It’s our philosophy that every piece of ours one encounters should bring the owner joy, and that the enjoyment should deepen with every use. We look forward to sharing our passion with you through our new instructional offerings.
