Have you ever wanted to experience throwing a piece of clay on a pottery wheel?

Our Pottery Wheel Experience is designed to do just that.

It is an inexpensive alternative to signing up for a full block of lessons.

The Pottery Wheel Experience is  a great way for

families, friends, couples and groups to spend some time together!

Our potter will first show you the steps involved in throwing a piece of clay on the wheel

He will then work with you to create your own special piece from the choices above

Our potter will then heat and dry your piece to prepare it to be painted with engobes (liquid clay) and during this time, you will have time to practice the wheel on your own

Your time spent in the studio is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours which includes the time spent on the wheel wheel and the time spent painting  your piece

A sample of what it is like to throw clay on a pottery wheel

(PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A LESSON, it is experiencing the wheel with the help of our potter)

Each participant will have the option of making a small bowl, small vase or small plate with the help of our potter.

Your piece will be painted the same day using engobes - a colored liquid clay available in limited colors.

Once completely dry your piece will be bisque fired in our kiln.

Clear glaze will then be applied to your piece and it will be fired again in our kiln. This process ensures your piece is food safe.

Hand washing recommended.
Finished pieces will be available for you to pick up according to the date given you on your Pottery Pick-up card

or can be shipped to your address (shipping fees apply)
