Our introductory experience is ideal for first-timers who want to play in clay. Over the course of an hour and a half, your instructor will help you wedge, center, open, and raise up to three balls of clay to (hopefully!) create your very own bowl, vase, cup, or planter! Once we bake your pieces in a kiln, you can paint them at our studio as well: the price is all-inclusive.
Bring a friend or treat someone special in your life! We can teach up to two throwers at a time. It is $65 for individual throwers; $125 for a couple. Call us at 504-835-4155 to make your appointment: dates & times subject to instructor availability.
We currently do not offer wheel-throwing parties or formal lessons for adults. We are perfect for those who want one try at the wheel before committing to month-long classes elsewhere. We do offer hand-building (sculpting) parties for adults. We recommend pottery painting parties for your first time to our studio (read more here). If you know you want a clay party, give us a call at 504-835-4155!
Classes are held once a week on weekdays and last an hour and a half. The class can be scheduled to start anytime between 10am-4:30pm for any recurring weekday. Just give us a call at 504-835-4155 to check our availability and to sign-up! *Mondays are unavailable in August
Payment for all 4 classes is made in full upon registration. Classes cannot be rescheduled once dates and times are decided. In extenuating circumstances, partial store-credit or resumption of classes in the next available month will be offered, whichever is more appropriate.
