We’ve been fans of artist Nicole Northway long before she began teaching Dabble classes. Now, however, she’s educated Dabblers on everything from knitting to street art to stationery, and has since become one of our most celebrated teachers. Her latest offering is Clay 101 where students can learn to push and pinch slabs of clay into their own unique masterpieces.

In honor of Clay 101, we’ve created a little roundup of our favorite pieces of pottery … ranging in difficulty from “Hey! I could do that!” to “Wishful thinking, buddy.” You don’t need to be an artist to enjoy this class, you just need sleeves that roll up and a smidge of inspiration ;).

Can’t wait to see what you create!


Clay 101: Thursday, July 26th from 6:00 PM Р8:00 PM, $35, at One Strange Bird in Wicker Park.
