$75 for a Clay Date Pottery Class for Two ($150 Value)
During Clay Date classes, duos get their hands dirty as they throw clay on a pottery wheel, using light pressure to sculpt the delicate curves of a bowl or vase. Each student will create a single piece of pottery that will be ready for pickup in two weeks. The staff handles the glazing, but students get to select the color. Students are welcome to bring snacks and beverages to class, which runs between 2 and 2.5 hours.
Fired Up Studios
Started in 1998, Fired Up Studios has quickly evolved from a small pottery studio to an art center with classes and a gallery. Despite this growth, its mission remains the same: to raise the spirits of anyone who enters. In the 7,200-square-foot studio, experienced potters provide a judgment-free creative outlet for students and visiting artists alike, inviting them to have fun and experiment with the studio's collection of pottery wheels, kilns, and glazes. These potters also teach students how to throw clay, shape up elegant bowls and vases, and sculpt pixelization onto nude figures.

“Loved the class! Ralph was very patient and calm. We were lucky to have a small class, but he provided individual coaching where needed. My only recommendation would be to maybe break the beginning demonstration up into sections. By the time it was our turn, I had forgotten what the beginning steps were, but Ralph did go through it with us again. Had a great time and am considering taking a 6 week class! Easy location to get to, though parking may be an issue on busier days.”
“It was a great deal to try out the pottery on a wheel! It was a great experience.”
