Welcome to Sawmill Pottery

Sawmill Pottery is a working studio for the community, offering classes and workshops for all ages and abilities.

We had such an amazing experience in May that we're going back!

Italy Like a Local: Pottery, Food and Culture
May 1-10, 2019 VASTO, FAENZA & ORVIETO
Pre-trip option in ROME April 28-30

This trip is not your average Italian tour. While we will visit some tourist sights, we will spend more of our time actually engaging with locals- eating dinner with families, spending time with potters in their studios, etc.

If you are looking for a trip where you'll just run around to each and every tourist attraction to take a selfie, this is not your trip. If, however, you're looking for a deeper experience- one in which you'll make new friends, experience meals the way the locals eat, and really get involved in Italian life, come along. We will show you a side of Italy you might never see otherwise.

We also have an on-site gallery, showcasing & selling select works of our own potters plus other local artisans making jewelry, sculpture and more.
