 Family Pottery Workshop | 12pm-1pm | Studio 550

Parent and child will each get their own wheels. The class begins with a quick demonstration, participants then get to throw on the pottery wheel, and the last 10-15 minutes is reserved for clean up. Because we are limited to 8 participants in a class and because throwing on the wheel is more involved than clay sculpting, there is a limit of one child per parent. This class is held monthly from 12-1PM on the First Saturday of each month. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to allow for check in, get aprons on and get situated for the demo to start at noon. The sooner we get settled, the more time you will have to throw on the wheel! More here.

 Family Clay Workshop | 1:30pm-2:30pm | Studio 550

Come in Saturday afternoon 1:30-2:30 with your kid (or a couple of kids) to share the magic of clay together. You will each get to hand-sculpt a clay project from scratch. Kids of all ages are welcome, but if your child is 5 or under, you may spend a bulk of the workshop helping your child sculpt their piece. There is no defined lesson plan, as clay leaves a lot of room for creativity! No worries if you don’t know what to make. If you are stumped, the teacher will have projects to suggest. If you know what you want to make, the teacher will help guide you. Leave your creations with us to fire and we will let you know when they are ready to pick up. Please allow 3-4 weeks for completion. More here!
