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.This 2 - 2.5 hour class, will give you the 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.

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 wear clothes and shoes you can get dirty, trim your fingernails, and leave your watch and rings at home. Clay is messy and we don't want you to lose anything.

You are also welcome to bring a beverage and snack of your choice. Wine or beer is okay. We recommend coming a little early if you plan to bring a snack as your hands will be getting dirty once the class begins.

Gift Certificates Available

Introduce your friends to the joys of making pottery. It's the perfect gift for someone who has everything.


$75 per person *
* Includes the cost of having one piece glazed and fired.
