Clay Date

Give It A Spin

Clay Dates are designed for couples, friends, or small groups that want to do something different. We want you to learn what it takes to throw a pot, but it's just as important to us that you have a good experience.We will get a chance to try out a potter's wheel and get your hands dirty, while our instructor helps you to make your own unique pot. We provide everything you need. All you have to do is come ready to have a good time, and remember to wear clothes that can get dirty (this includes shoes).

We will finish and fire one piece per person in the glaze of your choice. Work will be finished and ready for you to pick up in approximately 2 weeks.

You do not need to be romantically involved to register for a Clay Date. In addition to couples, Clay Dates are perfect for:

  • Friends
  • Family Fun
  • Birthday Parties, Showers, & Small Reunions
  • Corporate Outings

Please feel free to bring a beverage and snack of your choice. (Wine or beer is okay.)
