Beginning Pottery

Dive into clay with our introductory pottery class! Learn the ins and outs of throwing one-of-a-kind ceramics pieces and explore the basics of finishing and glazing your work. No previous experience with clay is necessary.

Clay must be purchased at the Studio. Clay is $10-$17 for a 25 lb bag depending on clay body. We also sell tools kits at the Studio and the prices range from $10-$18. Class includes unlimited glazes, firings, and open studio access.
