If you’re looking for a constructive way to relax, have fun, and learn something new R & L Ceramics of Roscoe, IL, invites students of all ages to join us for ceramics lessons.

Owner Linda Littlejohn has been teaching ceramics classes for 32 years and loves helping guests “Relax & Learn” (R & L Ceramics). You’ll find that it’s a great and highly therapeutic way to meet new people, and have fun, all while flexing your creative muscles.

Fun For All Ages

Adult classes take place during the week; children’s classes are held on Saturdays. We have taught students of all ages, from 4 to 102. Yes, 102—and she did just fine!

Friendly Instruction

When you walk into R & L Ceramics, we’ll greet you with a warm hello and ask if we can help you. In the classroom, you’ll pick out what you want to make. Once you’ve made your selection, you’ll pull up a chair, and Linda will provide instruction from beginning to end. She starts by showing you how to clean the piece, remove the seam lines, and sponge it down. Next you’ll decide how you want to paint it—and whether to paint it before or after the piece has been fired in the kiln. Linda will help you make the right choice for the piece you’ve selected. She also will suggest colors and techniques, helping you visualize what the finished piece could look like. Linda offers suggestions only—the choices are all yours. To help you choose, we typically can provide finished samples.

Our main goal is for you to enjoy your experience at R & L Ceramics and take home a piece that you're proud of.
