TAKE A SPIN
Our studio is equipped with two pottery wheels and offers option 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 - 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 fired (or you can choose to come back and fire it yourself), fired again and ready for pick up in a few weeks. Clean up is required.
WHEEL TIME / PRACTICE - Enjoy an hour and half of uninstructed time on the pottery wheel to work at your own pace an hone your skills. You'll receive access to our fully equipped studio, a dedicated wheel, a few pounds of clay and tools. 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 creations, simply pay a $20.00 glaze + firing fee and your piece will be ready to pick up in two weeks. Instruction is not provided and clean up is required within your 90 minute allocated timeframe.
Stop in anytime during our business hours to play with clay. We have a handful of DIY handbuilding projects including pinch pots, handmade mugs, vases and ceramic wall art. Projects range in price from $35.00 to $100.00.
Join CLAY + CRAFT for a two hour hand-building workshop filled with pottery goodness. During the workshop you’ll receive clay, instruction and inspiration to help you create your own hand built mug (or vase) as you get your hands dirty alongside others. Once dried, your piece will be fired, glazed (per your selection), fired again and will be ready for pick up in a few weeks. Advance registration is required.
