$35 for a Pottery Hand-Building Workshop ($75 Value)
During a 2.5-hour class, pottery experts lead approximately 5 to 12 students through a session in hand building, where they learn techniques for creating functional items such as coffee mugs, vases, or teapots. Students are able to take their pieces home two to three weeks later for an additional $15. Check the schedule for class times.
La Mano Pottery
A pottery studio whose name literally means “the hand” in Spanish, La Mano Pottery beckons its many students of all skill levels to find out what their hands can do when given balls of unformed clay. Inside the friendly confines, a ceramic community of experienced instructors lead their charges toward creating their own pieces within a large, well-lit space. The staff also runs an in-store gallery of recently shaped pieces.
