Parties, Groups,
& Events

Whether your planning a corporate event, school field trip, club outing, scout activity or just looking for something to do with a bunch of your friends, we offer several options for groups of 8 or more to experience “Paint Your Own Pottery,” “Make Your Own Pottery,” Glass Fusing, or Canvas/Board Painting. We can even host an event at your location! Call or for details.


Celebrate in our party space! You don't just have to do "Paint-Your-Own" pottery for your party. We can customize a party package to suit your particular needs. Great fun for birthdays, of course, but also for baby or bridal showers, anniversaries, going-away parties, office events or any other excuse to celebrate! Choose the "Paint Your Own" Pottery, or substitute "Make Your Own" Pottery on the wheel, a Glass Fusing Project, Canvas Painting, or Flow Art instead.

We provide table coverings, materials, tools and instructions for your group of 8-24 or more! Finished pieces are individually wrapped, labeled and ready for the host family to pick up in about 7-14 days. Available party times are 12:30 pm, 3 pm, & 6 pm on Saturdays, and 12:30 and 3 pm on Sundays. During the week, times are customer’s choice (subject to availability). Weekend parties (Friday through Sunday and Monday school holidays) require a minimum of 8 guests. During the week, only 6 are required. A $50 deposit will be required to hold your date.

Girl Scouts & Brownies,
Cub Scouts & Webelos:
One 1-1/2 hour session. Groups of 8-24 (siblings age 7+ are welcome). Each scout will receive 3 lbs. of clay to create one project on the wheel plus one hand-built project. Call for pricing. (Clay, bisque firing, glaze, and glaze firing included). Girl Scouts will earn the Ceramics and Clay Badge. Brownies, Cub Scouts, and Webelos can complete requirements for any art-related badges or pins, or just come in to have some fun.

Boy Scouts:
BSA Pottery Merit Badge—To complete the pottery merit badge will take a minimum of 3 visits of about 1 hour each. Included in this is a basic history of pottery, learning and trying several hand-building techniques for wet clay, making a pottery piece on the wheel, and also learning how to properly load a kiln. Each piece made by the scout will be painted by the scout and then fired to create a finished glazed piece. This is a fairly easy badge that is also very fun and interesting for a scout to do. Cost is $65, including instruction, materials and use of all studio tools and equipment.
