What you'll do

We will literally get down to earth, get centered and throw some mud. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty and explore the depth of your creative spirit. Our master potter will demonstrate the mesmerizing process of throwing a basic cylinder on the wheel. Then its your turn to get your hands into the clay and create your own masterpiece. Anything you want to keep will be trimmed, bisque fired, glazed and glaze fired by our master potter's and made available for you to pick up at a later date (3-6 weeks). After you have created your masterpieces, the last 15 minutes of class will be for clean-up. If you want to use all your time creating, for a small fee, the teacher will do the clean-up for you, just ask.

*Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can start on time. Late arrivals disrupt the flow of the demonstration and won't give you the time you will want to create.

*For a private group or team session at a date and time of your choice, please send me a message.

This was a great experience. I wanted something to do instead of the normal sightseeing and this was a great experience. I never did it before and it was doable for beginners. The instructor was informative helpful and patient with all of us.

Super fun time. The class is small which means we got a lot of attention from our instructor. It was our first time doing pottery/working with clay, and we managed to end up with things that look reasonable :) highly recommend it

We booked this experience for a team offsite and it was perfect. The usual dates and times were booked and Steve was able to find another time that worked for us during the work day. Our instructor Jasmine was also super patient with us and we were able to create a few pieces on our own by the end. I would come back!

Excellent pottery class, Dev was patient and helpful throughout the class and did a great job explaining the techniques. The visual aids with the various stages of pottery progression was extremely helpful. Overall, I’m really happy with the class. Suggestion: smaller class size would lead to more hands on instruction/attention. 12 people is a lot for 1 instructor.

This is pure value for money. The class is well structured for a beginner and the flow is very well paced. Our teacher was Dev and she walked us through the lesson at a steady pace, answering all our questions, giving us tips and helping us whenever needed. I'd definitely recommend this class👌👌
