Introductory Wheel Throwing Class

This is a introductory 2 - 2.5 hour class that will give you the chance to try out a potter's wheel and get your hands dirty, while our instructor helps you to make your own unique pot. We provide everything you need. All you have to do is come ready to have a good time. We will fire up to three pieces of your choice and they will be ready for pickup in about 2 weeks. It is your responsibility to pick up your pieces within 30 days after they are fired. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE CLAY FIRING AND PICK UP SCHEDULE

Please wear clothes and shoes you can get dirty, trim your fingernails, and leave your watch and rings at home. Clay is messy and we don't want you to lose anything.You are also welcome to bring a beverage and snack of your choice. We recommend coming a little early if you plan to bring a snack as your hands will be getting dirty once the class begins.

$45 per person 
* Includes the cost of having up to 3 pieces glazed and fired.

Ages: 10 and older
