$75 per student ▪️ 2hr class

learn the basics of “throwing” and “pulling” clay into pottery (and other objects) you can use everyday.

in this 2hr wheelthrowing session, you'll have 3 tries to make a set of bowls or cups and add decoration (if you’d like) with stamps and texture tools.

we’ll finish your pieces with your choice of glaze and have them ready to pick up within 3 weeks of class  :-)

these are communal sessions, so there is a chance you will make some new friends in this class.

if these times don’t work or you’d prefer a private session, book through our calendar instead

walk-ins? sometimes…

looking for something today? we might be around :-) text liza @ 954-459-8006 for info.

yo, teach! more

all the lovely little details

what to expect in class:

what you’ll make:

some beautiful pots with a whole lot of personality!

students generally make 2-3 pieces each — could be bowls, plates, short cups. small vases, etc.

where we’ll make it:

class occurs outdoors in our covered studio. expect flora, fauna, and general #florida phenomena. 

MAY-SEPTEMBER: with summer comes rain! if the weather is too severe to host class, we’ll reschedule at your convenience.

what you’ll keep:

you’ll get to keep any pieces you make, up to three pots each.

how we’ll glaze it:

we’ll coat your pieces in a clear glaze unless you choose to schedule a glazing day with us.

all pieces are microwave/dishwasher friendly and food-safe once finished.

when you’ll get it:

we’ll text you when work is ready! please allow for 2-4 weeks of processing after class.

we appreciate the patience —this is a long process and we try hard to keep a steady schedule but sometimes things happen. we’ll keep in touch if so!

we will store work for 45 days after we text you your work is ready!!!

but also: life happens, just talk to us if you can’t get back to the studio in that time period and we will figure something out.

however, if we can’t get a hold of you, work will have to be sent to alternative storage (don’t worry, all pots go to heaven)

dress code? more like mess code…

make sure to dress for a mess, not for dinner!! short nails, lightweight long pants, and closed-toed shoes are highly recommended.

four wheels // four people to a class

we have a max of four people in wheel classes. please, no surprises 🙏🏻

more than four? we’ll see if we can figure something out at the handbuilding table if you have a larger party. we teach many things beyond round things — mugs, dinnerware, pipe making, figure sculpting, etc. check em out here.

how to find us:

here is a map to our studio!

you’re looking for a jungle house with a gravel driveway leading to a wooden gate. there’s big banyan tree in the front yard.

carpool if you can! we have room for one or two cars in the driveway.

you can also park on the street / swale under the trees (but not on the sidewalk, please!)

where to go when you get here:

you are there, we are here

once you’ve arrived, follow the gravel driveway to the sculpture at the wooden gate, we’ll come open up for ya.
