Welcome to Yada Yada Pottery
Artisan Boutique

Join us for a journey of creativity, self-discovery, and the joy of crafting something truly unique,…. like you! Find your center with us, and let the art of pottery enrich your soul.


We will spend 5 days learning and exploring methods, tips, and techniques in the vast world of clay. We will travel through the whole process of wheel throwing and hand building, play with various surface techniques, and create several projects. Whether you are an experienced potter, or have never touched clay, you will learn new skills, overcome challenges, gain a feeling of accomplishment, and be a part of a supportive community. 


*If lodging is needed, Mount Dora has many wonderful B&B or hotel accomodations either right in the downtown or with walking distance to the studio.  We can provide more information by request.
