                  POTTERY CLASSES​:     


Remember the movie “Ghost” back in the 1990s?  Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze changed everything about the way we think about a little dirt and water on a potter’s wheel.  It’s organic, it’s messy, and when shared with someone you love . . . it’s romantic and fun.   

If you are newly married, honeymooners, looking for something new, or just want to have fun, Couple’s Pottery can be a meaningful and invigorating experience using raw materials infused with playfulness.

Sessions begin with a 15 minute teaching time on the basics of pottery.  Then your instructor will give you and your partner personal time and space to enjoy the wonderful experience of creating art together. If you need further instruction or guidance, your instructor can to be available as needed.
