I have experience on the wheel, can I come in to use your wheels?

Yes. We have wheel use time whenever we are not having a class. Check our class schedule for class times and walk-in or make a reservation. Saturdays are popular times for open wheel use, so reservations are recommended. Wheel use is $10 per hour and requires basic knowledge of the use of the wheel and centering.

Do you have clay wheel throwing classes?

Yes. We offer classes for kids and adults on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday Every week. We have a fun wine and wheel class for adults, which is great for date night. We offer kids classes for ages 6 to 12. No experience is required and during the class you will learn posture, centering, working with the clay and equipment and create several pieces. Usually, on your first time working on the wheel, you will make bowls. Take additional lessons to advance into vases, pots, cups, and creating handles as well as using tools to create design elements in your pieces.
