      1-hour Wheelthrowing Event: $69 per person

      Get messy and try your hand at the potter's wheel! Groups will learn to center, open, and shape a small bowl or dish on the pottery wheel. This is a great opportunity for everyone to try something challenging and messy as a team!

      • Our staff will finish and glaze 1 piece per person
      • Souvenir creations available for pickup after 4-6 weeks
      • At this time no eating or drinking is allowed in our studio - we look forward to a time when we can offer catering and BYOB again!  

        2-Hour Wheel Throwing & Hand Building Event: $105/Person

        Our combo event includes creating two projects! The first project: a hand-built cup or pencil holder! Using texture tools to enhance the surface of your piece, you'll learn to assemble a tall, functional cylinder. The second part of the class is a lesson on the pottery wheel. Bond with your team while getting dirty and trying something new!

        • Our staff will finish and glaze 2 pieces per person
        • Souvenir creations available for pickup after 4-6 weeks
