Clay Project

(Pack 1 of 3)

How it Works:
We have 3 variations:

  • Slabs for a Mug
  • A Hollow “bubble” of clay (can be a jar, fairy house, sculpture, etc.)
  • The Open-Ended “Anything-is-Possible” ball of clay

Create your own clay creations at home with step-by-step tutorials and a basics video for inspiration. Drop off (or very carefully pack and mail) the creations back to us and we will fire the pieces for you. The kit includes clay, slip, basic tools. Many household items can become great clay tools too!

All tools must be returned in order for your piece to be fired. One piece finished and fired is included in the cost of each piece of clay you order.

For families with multiple kids or anyone who has multiple projects in mind, choose the basic pack and get additional pieces of clay.

If you’d rather join us for a guided workshop, we have lots of those!

A classy twist on the traditional PYO Pot Shop

Welcome to our new Paint-a-HANDMADE-Pot Studio!

Click here to Reserve a Table.

A low key activity for those who are into having fun and being crafty, but like to roll on a whim without a scheduled class.

How does it work?

  • Reserve a table at the link above.
  • Choose from a selection made by NH potters. 
  • Pick colors and brushes, browse examples, get your paint on!
  • Since face masks are required, no snacks are allowed at this time.
  • Leave the pots with us to glaze fire
  • Pick up two weeks later, ready to use (but wait for our email to let you know they’re done).

Pricing

$7 per person for a painting session, any age. The final cost will be based on the pieces chosen for painting, but pots will range from $7-55 each.

Meet the Artisans

All the mugs, bowls, and dishes are made by local NH potters.  As a result, selection varies from visit to visit, but trust that it is well made!
