Always wanted to try Wheel Throwing? We always offer lots of Level 1 Wheel throwing for Teens and Adults.  

Brand new to clay?  We encourage you to check out our new Introduction to Ceramics class - it is not a pre requisite for wheel 1 or handbuilding but it will give you a great foundation in clay.   

One Night on The Wheel

Have you wanted to try making pottery on the wheel?  

Here is your opportunity to enjoy one evening discovering the art of throwing clay during this 2.5 hour workshop.

 

This will be a super fun night out of the house in a fully masked and physically distanced environment and maybe it will spark your interest in wheel throwing for years to come.

 

After the workshop our technicians will trim and fire your pieces and they will be ready for you to pick up in 2 weeks. Come and relax while experiencing the joy of clay. This workshop is open to clients 14 years and older. All materials included
