Each session will require 3 trips to our studio:  

  1. First trip for the lesson
  2. Second trip to paint/glaze your pots,
  3. Third trip, return to pick up your finished masterpieces.  

Each wheel throwing lesson includes time on the wheel where you will create at least one pot/bowl out of clay. A second pot may be thrown on the wheel, time permitting, for an additional $5, during a small group or party event. We will let your pot dry for up to 10 days, fire it in the kiln, and then call/text you that your pots are ready to be painted/glazed.  You will have 30 days to return to the studio to paint/glaze your pots choosing from over 80 colors and styles of glaze.  We will then fire your painted/glazed pots one final time.  Lastly, after about 7 to 10 days, you will be texted/called when your masterpiece(s) are ready for pick up.  You will have 30 days to pick up your items.  Unclaimed items may be donated/discarded after 30 days.

A 24 hour cancellation policy applies to all wheel participants when cancelling for any reason within 24 hours of the class.
A 48 hour cancellation process for party events is required.
