Low commitment and a great way to test out wheel throwing without an 8 week commitment! Grab your significant other, mom & dad, or some girlfriends for this super fun & relaxed ‘sampler’ class. Commit to three hours of just one day, and try the potter’s wheel out, you might get sucked in and take a longer class! Your instructor will get you throwing on the wheel. Keep one of your best pieces to bisque and glaze, or you can keep it to glaze in an 8-week course. Pieces will be available for pick up three to four weeks after classes.

While we love reenactments of the pottery scene from ‘Ghost’, acting skills are not necessary and we’ll keep the romantic lighting to a minimum for our one night pottery class!  Grab your partner, your mom, a friend, (anyone!) for this fun and relaxed night out with wine, nibbles, and clay. Your instructor will get you throwing on the wheel so you can each have a piece to take home to remind you of the night!

Work will take two to four weeks to be fired, all participants will be notified when work is ready for pick up.
