Upcoming Workshops


Friday, Aug 23, 6-8pm
Friday, Sept 20, 6-8pm
Saturday, Oct 26, 10:30am-12:30pm
$65 includes firing fees.

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!




Saturday and Sunday, August 17-18, 10-3:30pm (with 1 hour break each day) $165

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

This 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!


Saturday, August 24, 1-3pm, or Saturday, October 19, 10:30am-12:30pm
$70 includes all materials and firing fees.

Participants must reserve a spot by Wednesday prior to the workshop.

Join us for this popular workshop prepared with an idea for your Jack-O-Lantern and pick out your very own pumpkin from our "patch" to get started!

We'll provide all the tools, and hints you'll need to carve a pumpkin that will last forever! Once you've carved your masterpiece, you'll leave your jack-o-lantern with us. We will fire it and glaze it and have it back to you to enjoy for Halloween!


Saturday, September 7, 10:30-12:30 $60 includes all materials, firing, and glazing of your mug.

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! It will be ready to sip from as the weather grows colder!


Saturday, September 28, 10:30am-12:30pm $65 includes all materials and firing.

Create a gorgeous clay "leaf" bowl using leaves gathered on trails in The Last Green Valley! Use ours or bring your own.

You'll work with slabs of clay, pressing the leaves into the clay and then attaching them together and molding them into a bowl. You'll leave the bowl with us to get glazed and fired. It will be ready for you to pick up by the end of October.
