Take a private clay & wheel workshop

Take a clay workshop with one of our professional clay instructors.   Learn handbuilding techniques and make functional pieces or decorative scupltures. We will cover the basis of wheel throwing through demonstration and one-on-one teaching.

At the end of the workshop, you will pick 2 pieces from each technique to have dried and fired.  Your sign up also include your return time to paint and glaze them for a final product.

Preserve their impressions forever with clay

Take hand and footprints from your little ones and preserve their memories forever in fired clay.

After your clay projects are fired you are welcome back to paint and personalize it.  Working with clay takes longer so the turn-around time is usually about 3 weeks.

Contact us in advance and let us know if you would like us to roll out a slab of clay for you.  We will have it setup for you the same-day.
