What you'll do

WHAT WE’LL DO…
First, we'll do a quick tour of the studio. You’ll see skilled potters at work and learn the process of making, glazing and firing ceramic artwork. Then we'll don aprons and sit down to "throw on the wheel" or sculpt. Our studio will provide tools, instruction and enough clay for everyone to make 5 pieces. YOU and your guests will pick what you want to make: bowls, cups, planters -- or dinosaurs and castles.

After you leave, and your pieces have dried, the potters at FIRESTICK can trim and kiln-fire them for you. You may then come back in a few weeks, to glaze your own work. If you can't come back, the potters can do this for you. Your finished, high-fired pieces can be picked up, or mailed anywhere in the country.

If your guests are mostly kids under 12, it would be better to schedule a "hand-building" or sculpting class. The potters wheel can be difficult for kids to operate. Feel free to write to us, BEFORE making reservations, with ANY questions or special kinds of needs.
Other things to note
Guests are welcome to bring their own food or beverages to The Party. Please feel free to contact us in advance if you'd like some special arrangements.

We can often accommodate larger groups, especially for "hand-building" classes.
