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!!


WHEEL 102 

Sunday, May 1 Noon-2pm 

$70 includes materials and firing fees

Have you been to at least two Wheel 101 workshops? Want to take it to the "next level"? 

Try wheel 102, where we will start with double the clay and have double the fun! We will work on throwing taller and larger. We'll work towards a mug or a vase and a large bowl. New tools will be introduced and more refined techniques taught.

(not on the pottery wheel)

Sunday, May 8 (Mother's Day) Noon-3pm
Sunday, June 5 11am-2pm 

$80 includes all materials and firing fees. Limit 6 people

This little planter set will brighten up any windowsill, and the pots are the perfect size for small succulents or kitchen herbs! Join us in this brand new workshop where you'll get a slab of clay and transform it into a gorgeous windowsill garden. 

We'll teach you to use patterns to cut out the walls of your pots, use stamps or other found objects to texture them, and then assemble them into an adorable planter set! Finish the set off with a tray to hold all three. 

At the end of the workshop, you'll choose a glaze color for your set, leave your creations with us, and we will fire and glaze them for you and they'll be ready for you to start planting in about a month!
