Wheel Throwing Classes

How it works: Every guest gets a guided chance to throw a pot on the pottery wheel. (Throwing a pot is the term potters use when creating on the wheel). We have four wheels on hand and each person gets on the wheel individually. Normally, guests can make a plate, bowl or mug. After the class, we wrap all your pieces and label them with  your choice of pre-selected colors. All materials are non-toxic and the paint washes out of clothes. The pots will be unfinished white pottery. and our staff will paint them for you. 

Adults: Couples Throw Down- July 27th: 5:30-6:45pm or August 24th 5:30-6:45pm.
