Wheel 101 is a two hour intro to creating bowls on the pottery wheel.

You’ll learn to “throw” the clay and have the opportunity to make 2 bowls.

You’ll pick glaze colors at the end of the session, and the bowls will be fired and glazed for you and returned in about a month!

No experience necessary!!


Saturday, May 1, 10:30-Noon $55

All the same fun of Wheel 101, organized specifically for kids aged 8-13!

Have you taken our wheel 101 workshop at least twice? Time to take your skills to the next level! We will work on throwing taller in this workshop to create a mug and also learn how to make a handle that will get attached for you when the mug is trimmed.

Just like in Wheel 101, you’ll pick glaze colors at the end of the session, and the mugs will be fired and glazed for you and returned in about a month!




Sunday, April 11, Noon-2pm
$50 workshop fee. 

Make as many stakes as you’d like. Each one is $3 firing fees

Temperatures are rising, and that means it’s time to plan your garden! What would be better this year than personalized colorful handmade stakes?!? We have different sizes and fonts of letter stamps, but feel free to bring your own if you have a favorite.


Sunday, April 25, Noon-2pm
$65 includes all materials and firing fees

Make a Mug that is uniquely yours! We will teach you how to roll a slab of clay, texture it, assemble it and add a handle. At the end of the workshop, you’ll choose a glaze color, leave the mug with us, and we will fire and glaze it for you.


Sunday, May 9, Noon-2pm
$65 includes all materials and firing

Spend Mother’s Day with us getting creative! You’ll work with stiff slabs to construct a unique box. Create a box to hold jewelry, treasures, salt, your keys… you name it! 

After cutting out your slabs, you can carve in texture or add clay to make the box uniquely yours. Choose glaze colors and leave the box with us— we’ll fire and glaze for you, and you’ll have your box in about a month!


Sunday, May 16, Noon-2pm
$65 includes all materials and firing

Create a one of a kind vase for all the beautiful May flowers. You’ll design and create your own vase out of a slab of clay. You’ll learn how to use a template to create a vase that is just the shape you like. 

Then you can carve, impress, or attach clay to your vase to decorate it in your own unique way. Love the concept but you don’t need another flower vase? Make yours into a utensil holder or crock instead!
