2 hours Class size 1 to 15     label $96

If you're curious about a special Japanese pottery making technique and want a crash course on the basics, give this NYC class a go! It's a chance for complete beginners to try their hand at the potter's wheel and experience Japanese neriage - a gorgeous technique resulting in swirled, different-colored clay.

In this pottery class, you will be shown the basics via a short demonstration of how to make a cup or bowl shape on the pottery wheel. Then, you'll be guided along as you try it yourself. The spin? The clay you use will be Japanese neriage colored clay. The end result will be a stunning combination of marbled streaks.

Whether you're looking for date night ideas, team building activities, or just something fun to try this weekend in NYC, this class is a great option. Come sink your hands into some clay and make a piece of glazed pottery that you'll be sure to treasure!
