***All ages welcome.

For just $36.  you can get dirty with your friends with our  " TRY IT CLASS".  This is a one time,  1 1/2  hour workshop & is exactly what it says. You'll get a quick intro to wheel throwing then you try it.  All materials, supplies, & 1 brick of clay included.  Additional clay available for purchase. If you are considering signing up for a 5-week Pottery Wheel & Hand-building class it will give you a head start before you commit. Feel free to bring Refreshments and chill out. All ages welcome. We recommend wearing clothes you don't mind getting dirty. REGISTRATION REQUIRED, NO WALK INS.

***** Since the purpose of this class is to give students a chance to experience throwing on the wheel our expectation is that  ALL pieces created during class will be deconstructed at end of evening & clay recycled.  If you are particularly pleased with your piece & instructor feels its structurally sound & likely to fire successfully you may opt to have piece trimmed, bisque fired by teacher for an additional fee depending on size of your piece.

Note:   Payment is required to reserve your ticket. Sorry no walk ins, class is by reservation only.  Pottery Wheels SEATS sell out fast, make sure to reserve yours asap. All ages welcome. Get them here:  www.urban-easel.com
