Play with Clay: Pottery Classes in Charlottesville

Have you been thinking about picking up a new hobby or simply trying something new? Why not try signing up for pottery classes in Charlottesville? Owned and operated by Christina Osheim, Möbius Keramikk is a ceramics studio that offers daily workshops as well as classes. As a third-generation Norwegian-American, Osheim draws inspiration from her Scandinavian roots.

Before opening up her own studio, Osheim attended Minnesota’s St. Olaf College, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Cranbrook Academy of Art. In a C-Ville Weekly article, the style of her work is described as, “Modernism, surrealism, elegance and simplicity.”
