TRY IT! Pottery Wheel Class – Please READ entire description!

Friday March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


SOur Try-It Classes are now using Stoneware Clay. Stoneware clay is oven, dishwasher and microwave safe!


Join us for a 2 hour wheel class – you will learn how to center your clay on the wheel and create a bowl/vessel. Try it classes are great for all levels – Class includes instruction, demonstration and the basics for beginning to use the wheel. You will prepare your clay and learn to properly clean and care for the wheel. Please dress for a mess and bring a towel for your lap – long hair should be tied up – no jewelry – please remove all rings, watches, bracelets before coming to the studio.

Firing your piece is NOT included in the $40 price – This is a true TRY IT Class. You can make as many pieces as you like in the allotted time – There is a $25 firing/glazing fee for each piece. This fee includes firing to bisque, CHOICE OF 6 GLAZE COLORS, and the glaze firing. Clay must have plenty of time to dry slowly so as not to crack – it takes approximately 7 to 10 days for pieces to dry then another 3 days for firing. WE WILL GLAZE YOUR PIECE AND THEN TEXT YOU WHEN YOUR PIECE IS READY TO PICK UP. All pots are held for 30 days after GLAZE firing – NO EXCEPTIONS.

NOW ONLY $40 per person – No refunds or rescheduling of classes due to limited class size and availability. This class is open to ages 12+ and Adults
