Upcoming Workshops


Tuesday-Thursday, Jan 2 - 4 (3 days) 6-9pm
$165 does not include firing fees but includes unlimited open studio hours for the week.

Want to work on your throwing skills? We will really break the throwing process down and work intensely on problems you've been having.

The class is not for absolute beginners, but it will be multi-level, so feel free to join us whether you're relatively new to clay or you've been throwing for years and just want a great skills refresher!


Tuesday, December 26, Noon-2pm
Tuesday, December 26, 4-6pm
Friday, Jan 5, 6-8pm

Wheel 101 is a two hour introduction to creating bowls on the pottery wheel. You’ll learn to “throw” the clay and have the opportunity to make 2 bowls. One is yours to keep, free with the workshop. If you’d like to keep both bowls, there is a small firing fee. 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 3 weeks!

$55 includes firing of one pot.



Friday, February 9, 6-9pm or
Saturday, February 10, 3-6pm
$115 per couple includes all materials, firing, and desserts

Take your valentine out for a night of creativity! You and your date will throw a bowl on the pottery wheel as well as create a handbuilt mug.

Enjoy some delicious Valentine’s treats between the two activities. 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!



Saturday, February 10, 10-11am

Come with your valentine, or come make something special for that special person! Along with our usual variety of pieces to paint, we will have some extra special valentine-themed items for you to choose from! Price varies on the pieces you choose.


Sunday, February 11, Noon-2pm

Come get involved in this yearly tradition. We’ve made 200 bowls for a fundraising dinner on March 10. Join us in the studio on Sunday, February 11 and help make each bowl unique! FREE with a donation of a canned good for Daily Bread food bank.
