On the First Friday of the month, we are open from 6-9pm where you can come in to look around and purchase pottery.
At 7pm, if you are interested in trying the wheel out during our First Friday events, we schedule 45 minute sessions to take part in this opportunity. A quick demonstration of throwing a pot is given. Then everyone gets a chance to try throwing clay on their own wheel. During this time, an instructor will be available to give hand-over-hand instruction to assist you in making a pot of your choice.
Everybody keeps one piece (within the scale of a cereal bowl or coffee mug) which stays at the studio for finish work and firing. When finished we notify you for pickup and, they are food-safe, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe.
Cost is $25/participant.
Ages 5+ (children younger than 18 need be accompanied by an adult)
