Family Clay Sculpting: A new project every month! The guided project has ample room for customization and creativity, so independent thinkers can take the project in where they choose.

The price includes one hand-sculpted piece per person. All ages are welcome, but if the child is 5 or under, parent & child can choose to sculpt a single piece together.

NOTE: This is NOT a wheel throwing class. The wheel is recommended for kids 9+.


Family Pottery Wheel:  This crash course on the pottery wheel includes a demonstration, about an hour on the wheel, some time for clean up, and at least one piece finished and fired per person. Extras may be kept for $5 each. Create side by side and have a blast making something that you can eat your snacks out of or drink from!

NOTE: 9 yo+ only. Smaller bodies have a difficult time on the wheel, and we don’t want one’s first experience with the wheel to be frustrating simply because of body size!
