Being creative with clay. Children work with slabs and lumps of clay to make something that is uniquely theirs. It might be a box, a vase, a sculpture, a cup and/or a plate. Instruction given.

A contact person will be notified to pick up the finished pieces in 2-4 weeks.
Advantages: Recommended for younger children. Very creative and satisfying.

Making and keeping forms from the potter's wheel. Children receive instruction on how to create pieces on the potter's wheel. Each person should have two finished pieces (perhaps a bowl and cup) by the end of the party. Six different glaze choices will be given. After the party the pieces will be glazed in the children's choices and fired in a kiln. A contact person will be notified to pick up the finished pieces in 2-4 weeks.
Advantages: Kids just love to try the potter's wheel. Using their own handmade pottery at home is a great reminder of a fun party.
Smoke & Fire & Fun, Oh My! 3 hours. $45 per person. All ages.
This is the dramatic, "wow" party. Everyone receives a professionally made piece of bisqueware. Instruction and suggestions are given as each person glazes the surface. Pieces are then loaded and fired in our primitive Raku kilns which are located in our funky, lush backyard. The kiln will heat up for approximately 50 minutes. This is the time to have cake, presents, etc. , and get a tour of the gallery and studios. We will periodically observe the kiln get hotter and the glazes begin to melt. The drama begins when the kiln reaches the correct temperature. Stand back and watch as the instructors work with fire, smoke and changing glaze colors right before your eyes. After a 15 minute wait, the pieces will be cooled off with water, cleaned of soot and ready take home.
Advantages: Professionally made piece of pottery. Time to socialize with friends. Excitement and drama of a kiln firing. Take your piece home that day.
