Stop by and check out what’s going on in our pottery studio. Sample some hand building techniques and try your luck at the potter’s wheel. This is your chance to see if a pottery class is right for you. Dress for a mess as there is a lot of mud flinging going on around here. You won’t make anything you can take home, but the experience will last a lifetime. Ages 18 and younger are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.
