Instructor-led clay making experience that you'll never forget .  Check out our various options below! We support groups big and small (7-60), guiding you through the process of pottery-making, while you create a mug or cup by hand and on the wheel.  Because the pieces need time to dry and have to go through the kilns 2 times before completing, you can pick up your pieces within 4-6 weeks from your event date.
