Service Description

Two and a half hour class where we walk you through making a project from start to finish. Well, finished in the wet clay stage, anyway. After your class, we'll let the piece dry completely, then we'll fire it, glaze it and put it in for a second firing. Some of the classes we offer are listed below. If you don't see a date listed for a class you're wanting, contact us about private bookings! We never upcharge for private bookings, we just ask that there be a minimum number of participants. These classes are open to all skill levels and are capped at 10 people to ensure a small student-to-teacher ratio. Our instructor will walk you through creating your project using a variety of hand building methods. You'll have the option of decorating your work during the class and you'll choose a single glaze color for it. After the class, our instructor will glaze your piece and fire it twice. Work will be ready to pickup 2-3 weeks after your class. You will be notified by email and text when your piece is ready. Wear comfortable clothing and come ready to have fun!
