2 hours Class size 1 to 5     label $60

Have you always been wanting to try out clay, but aren't ready to commit to a five week course? Join this pottery workshop in San Francisco to get your feet wet, and your hands a little dirty.

This is a one-time introductory class in wheel throwing so you can get a taste of what creating on the wheel is like. In this session, your instructor will take you through the basics of centering clay on the wheel, opening up your piece, and beginning to pull up walls.

Because creating a ceramic piece takes multiple sessions over several days, you will not be able to keep the pieces you make during a try-me class. If you would like to make and keep a piece, please check out our five week course series!

If you're looking for fun date night ideas, creative things to do in San Francisco, or want to explore a new hobby, this beginner's pottery class will allow you to learn something new and spend a day exercising your creative muscles. The goal of the class is to leave feeling inspired and relaxed after a day of playing with clay.

In the summer of 2009 Artillery AG blossomed in the Mission district of San Francisco. Founders Iván Lopez and Alexa Treviño set out to establish a creative gallery and studio that would embody Nature, Familia, and Cultura.

Artillery AG is home to many art forms that we are able to connect with. Creating with clay, earth, paint, and photography.

With clay and flora, we are able to honor our Pachamama. We connect with our earth each time we mold clay and tend to our plantitas. Giving thanks to the Ohlone people for allowing us to be on their land.

Through photography, we reflect on the times and also our ancestors in each moment. Reminding us of the beauty we have within ourselves and that of our community, immortalized with light.

Painting is an act of resistance. You can see the stories of our people painted on the walls of the Mission. Each color expressing our vibrant cultura. Art is the universal language so powerful we can understand each other with just a brushstroke.

At Artillery AG we prioritize being a safe space for our QT and BIPOC Community. We will not accept hate in our space.

We welcome you to join our creative familia.

Art is good for you homie!

Awesome class! Learned how to throw the clay on the wheel and some basic techniques for centering the clay. Definitely harder than It looks but also a very great intro class for beginners before deciding to continue with It. You don’t take anything home but you’ll find there isn’t much to take home depending on your skill level lol.

Great time spent very enjoyable, thank you!
