Pottery, and the ancient medium of clay has been with humans since the beginning of civilization. Touching and shaping clay not only brings us into a mindful present moment, but also connects us with all of the human lineage.

Our teacher was amazing and the class was well-worth the money! We each made about three pieces in an hour and a half, and could ask for help whenever we needed it. The studio was clean and prepped before we started, and cleanup didn't take long either. Great experience — we will definitely be coming back!

Really great crash course in wheel throwing! Pete was super helpful and was very attentive to everyone in class. I liked the small class size and all the stations were clean and organized. Had a ton of fun and will be back soon to pick up my piece!
