Pottery workshops at MudFire bring nationally and internationally known pottery and clay artists to Atlanta for inspirational and educational artists workshops in our sunlit loft studio. Our focus is to bring you superb instruction and inspiration at a reasonable cost.
Visit friends and family, explore Atlanta/Decatur's dining and shopping, catch a play at a local theatre, and spend a few days with other clay enthusiasts!
We generally try to arrange for our visiting artists to present a free slideshow and talk the evening before the workshop begins. These events are free and open to the public, presented as a service to the community. Check each workshop page for slideshow info.
Workshop registration is available by credit card on this site, or by phone at 404-377-8033. To purchase tickets by check please call to reserve first. Please refer to our workshop policies page for information on cancellation, hours, transfers and payment. Please see our lodging and travel page here.
Most of our workshops sell out, please purchase your tickets early if you are interested. Please call if you would like to take advantage of our pay-as-you-go plan for making multiple reservations.

Workshop has moved to February of 2016. Potential dates are February 19, 20, 21. Grace Sheese is one of MudFire's favorite new gallery additions. Her surface work is simply divine! Texture, color, drawings, decals, and inclusion of mixed media materials such as string, wire, sugru, and more make her work a fascinating study of surface design. This three day workshop will focus in techniques for creating these unique surfaces at home, ways to incorporate your ideas into your work, and more. Grace was a non-traditional Masters program candidate - heading back to graduate school in her mid-30s. This decision has shaped and defined her studio practice giving her artistic insight that she wants to share with you. A small lab fee will apply for supplies used during class - we will announce this and a full supply list of what you need to bring with you 30 days prior to the event.
