Experienced instructor helps students express themselves by throwing clay on a pottery wheel; one piece is returned glazed two weeks later
What You'll Get
- During pottery classes the participants 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.
- What’s included: pottery class, having one piece glazed and fired
- Most classes are adult only (18+). Children (13+) may be accompanied by an adult in the Sunday afternoon classes, with no more than 2 children per adult.

About 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.
