Hello New Hobby Potter Pals! 
I’m Tammy Jo Schoppet, a clay addict and  YouTube’s “Hobby Potter” since 2011!

Living a clay lifestyle with the hobby potter mindset gives you the freedom to explore pottery and ceramics at your own pace, in your own space, or wherever you find yourself being supported for growth and education! 

There are unlimited ways to work with clay and no two instructors or the same. The clay community is always open to sharing ideas and information (because there is not enough time in life to test and try every concept or technique!) 

My hope is that you immerse yourself in the “journey of learning”! Take a look around the website, visit the YouTube Channel, and our Instagram, Hobby Pottery, Pottery Making & Ceramic Facebook page  Hobby Potter Life Group if you want to connect with other hobby potters

Enjoy your day and the clay! ~ Tammy Jo Schoppet
