Wheel classes include teen wheel, wheel I and wheel II, and couples night out. Hand building classes may include coil building, pinch pots, slab building, mosaics, jewelry making, figurines or tile making.

All Materials are included unless otherwise noted.

Classes are available for all levels of pottery skills.

Students are automatically signed up for their time to work during their class period.

* Classes have moved back to in-Studio! Changes due to Covid-19 include: Everyone coming in the studio must wear a mask covering the mouth & nose and remain 6′ apart. Do not come in if you are sick or live with someone who is sick or exposed to Covid-19.

At Home Option: For those who are at risk for contracting or spreading Covid-19; At Home Classes  with video instruction are available for adults and children. Clay-to-go kits will be available for $10ea to aid in working from home for those who do not want an in-studio class. Please call and we can set this up. 414-249-5902
