Take your Valentine out for a shared night of creativity!

You and your date will get the chance to throw a bowl on the pottery wheel as well as create a handbuilt mug. Take a break between the two activities to enjoy some delicious Valentine’s treats.

Leave your stilettos at home and dress to get messy in this entirely new approach to Valentine’s Day. It will be a big hit with your loved one!


Tuesday-Thursday, December 27-29, 6-9pm
$150 does not include firing fees but includes unlimited open studio hours for the week.

Want to work on your throwing skills? Want to have a ton of fun this week in the studio? This adult "camp" is all about learning through fun.

We will be throwing, throwing, throwing for 3 hours per night for 3 nights! There will be drills, games, and exercises to target important skills and make you a better potter! We will really break the throwing process down and work intensely on problems you've been having.

The class will be multi-level, so feel free to join us no matter your skill level. We will keep the student to teacher ratio to 4 to 1, so you'll be sure to get individual attention.
