What do we offer?

Semester long classes are our core offering. We have an independent study program which is a good fit for experienced potters in need of a studio to work in.  We also offer private lessons,  weekend workshops, visiting artist workshops, private events and a robust summer kids program.  

 

About Us

Indigo Fire now has two locations! Indigo Fire's Belmont studio opened in 2012 and the Watertown studio opened in 2021. Our goal is to provide a friendly, non-intimidating environment for those interested in learning pottery. Whether you are a beginner or experienced potter, we have something to offer you.

The studios are built out with custom shelves and furnishings that were designed specifically for the space.  In both locations, we have a separate, ventilated kiln room with glaze chemicals to mix our unique glazes.  We fire at cone 6 and have an array of stonewares and porcelain to choose from.

Why Indigo Fire?

Materials

We make all of our glazes from scratch. Most of them are unique glaze recipes.

Staff

There is always a helpful, capable person on staff to manage the studio and assist with questions.

Community

It is factual that our students are the nicest, friendliest people in the pottery world.  

Access

Class and independent study students enjoy unlimited access to the studio during our operating hours, even when other classes are going on.

Equipment

We are lucky enough to have studios full of quality equipment in good working condition.

Cleanliness

We have a very high standard of cleanliness and organization.  We wet clean our studios daily.  All tools and materials are kept in their designated spots.
