Creative Fire Art & Pottery Studio connects students of all ages and abilities to the art of clay building through group classes held in a spacious, well-stocked studio. During each 60-minute children's mud-molding session, students aged 5–17 focus endless energy reserves toward sculpting original masks, wind chimes, and pinch pots. Dedicated instructors work with each student to instill proper hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques as students knead, sculpt, and pet their malleable medium. In two-hour mini adult classes, both novice and experienced sculptors kindle creative fires in a productive and social setting, making tableware pieces suitable for serving food or opaque fishbowls suitable for hiding homely pet fish. Adult classes include the cost of clay, tools, and one firing (additional glazes and firings start at $2). Both adult and kids’ mini classes are ongoing, so pupils can join at any time. Alternatively, today’s open-studio option allots practiced sculptors hours of unguided elbowroom to finish existing projects or to apply DIY mud facials to fellow potters without having to commit to a regular class schedule.
Creative Fire Art & Pottery Studio
Creative Fire Art & Pottery Studio has a roomy workspace where adults and kids can learn the craft of clay. The facility hosts day and evening classes. There’s also open studio time, where students can come and go as they please to finish building a piece or see if their clay pigeon has morphed into a real pigeon. In party packages, you and a group of friends can get a room to yourselves to work with clay under the advisement of an instructor. It’s also worth it to stop in Creative Fire Art & Pottery Studio’s gallery, which feature a number of original pottery pieces.
