Clay for a Day
Schedule a two-hour clay experience just for you and your friends, family, book club, co-workers, or all of the above! Recruit your group of four to twelve adults and enjoy a Clay for A Day workshop whenever it works for you. With at least two week's notice, we'll match your group with an experienced instructor who will help everyone create two pieces on the pottery wheel. Several glazing options are available, and pieces will be ready for pick-up roughly three weeks after your workshop.
