We are EXCITED to add Pottery Wheels to our studio in January 2018! This is a great opportunity to try your hands on the wheel, get a little muddy, and maybe create something pretty awesome! We’ve got several different options for playing in the mud with us and we’ve listed these below. To set up a reservation for a party or for any questions, please feel free to contact us at (608)784-0737. You may also register for our Saturday Evening Pottery on our calendar page.
****YOU SHOULD BRING YOUR OWN TOWEL TO ALL POTTERY PARTIES, CLASSES AND PRIVATE SESSIONS YOU ATTEND. *****
SATURDAY EVENING POTTERY
Looking for a little fun on a Saturday? Come alone, with a friend or two, or this makes a GREAT date night! We begin with a demonstration, then set you free to get your hands pretty muddy as you create your own pieces on the pottery wheel. We’ve got help along the way, and we do our best to be sure everyone creates a few pieces! Price includes 5 pounds of clay and you’ll choose your glaze colors before leaving. Please dress appropriately, or bring a change of clothes if you’re heading to dinner afterwards!
This is a 2 hour personal, but fun class for you and at least one friend (8 total max). You’ll spend two hours with your personal Instructor on the pottery wheel having fun and playing in the mud. We begin with a demo, then proceed to create pieces together. We guarantee you’ll end up with at least two pieces! Our schedules are flexible, so give us a call to book your party! $50 per Guest includes two pieces which we will glaze for you with your glaze choices, or for $10 additionally each piece, you may personalize these yourself at All Glazed Up!
Looking for a way to play dirty with friends? We’ve got the perfect idea for birthday parties, bachelorette parties, team building events, family gatherings! This is a 2 hour party which includes time on the pottery wheel and decorating your piece. We begin with a demonstration, then proceed step by step in throwing pottery on the wheel. We make sure EVERYONE creates at least one piece, and then we finish them by decorating or splatter painting the pieces. This is a definite out of the box party and always a big hit! $25 per Guest, 6 Guests minimum. Want to keep more than one of your pieces, just $10 for each additional piece you can’t part with! Check out our “Parties” Tab for more info!
Want to sit at the pottery wheel on your own? Or do some creative hand building with clay? We will give a 5 minute orientation to our wheels, clay and studio, but please note Open Studio does not include instruction, we therefore suggest previous clay and or wheel throwing experience. We rent our wheel time as follows: $20 for the first two hours (2 hour minimum), then each additional hour is $10. Clay is sold at $15 for half a brick (12.5 pounds), or $30 for the whole brick. We will bisque fire your pieces made with us at no charge. Glaze firings are at .10 cents per cubic inch with a $3 minimum charge per piece. There is no studio fee for time spent in the studio trimming your work. (No outside clay is to be brought into our studio please). Please note all work and clay left after 60 days may be discarded. Though it is rare, sometimes pieces explode (especially if heavy and thick) in the kiln. If your work explodes you will not be refunded for your clay or glaze firings. Instead this money will be used towards the cleanup of our kilns 🙂
For hand work or sculpture work, the clay and firing charges are as above, however we charge $10 per hour, per person to use our space and tools. You may use low fire or stoneware clay for hand building. The glaze charges are as above, however there is a minimum of $3 per piece for glazing.
CHILDREN’S AFTER SCHOOL POTTERY
Every Tuesday from 4 to 5:30 we welcome children ages 8 to 14 to create with clay in our studio. Children may use the wheel with supervision, or sculpture using simple tools and their imagination. $20 includes all materials. Please register online.
