TAKE A SPIN

Our studio is equipped with two pottery wheels and offers wheel options for all levels to get clay covered. Choose from a wheel lesson or reserve a wheel for uninstructed time to work at your own pace and create whatever your heart desires. Reservations are required. Please see below for details, availability and to book your wheel experience.

  • WHEEL LESSON - $100: A hands on, 90-minute wheel throwing 101 crash course. Receive a thirty-minute demonstration outlining the steps to throwing on the pottery wheel (ex: centering the clay, forming the bottom, making a pull and shaping the piece). Or, we can help you fine tune your existing wheel skills, provide an overview on glazing and more. Then, work at your own pace, ask questions and create one piece to keep. Your creation will be glazed, fired and ready for pick up in a few weeks. Clean up is required.

  • WHEEL TIME / PRACTICE - $25: Enjoy 90-minutes of uninstructed time on the pottery wheel to work at your own pace and hone your skills. You'll receive access to our fully equipped studio and tools, a dedicated wheel and a few pounds of clay. This is a great option for someone looking to experience the wheel as they wish or hone their skills. If you choose to keep your creation(s), simply pay a $20.00 glaze + firing fee. Instruction is not provided and clean up is required within your 90 minute allocated timeframe.
