One-Time Pottery Classes
$85 - Two Pieces of Pottery

Experience the fun of creating with clay! Our one-time pottery classes are perfect for beginners or those looking for a quick refresher. Guided by our experienced instructors, you'll get a feel for working with clay on the potter's wheel or through handbuilding with slabs.

 

We offer the unique benefit of making two pieces in each one-time pottery class. This approach allows you to reinforce what you've learned by applying it a second time, ensuring a deeper understanding and a more satisfying creative experience.

 

Booking's a breeze through our calendar below. Looking for more details? Scroll past the booking calendar for a video all about Throw Clay LA as well as detailed information about our one-time pottery classes.

About Our One-Time Pottery Classes

 

In our one-time pottery classes we will guide you through each step as you create 2 pieces - getting to make a second piece really lets you build on the techniques you've learned with the first piece. At the end of class you'll choose your glaze colors. Then we take it from there as we trim, glaze, and fire each piece. You'll get a "ready for pickup" email from us as soon as your pieces are cool enough to unload from the kiln - typically 3 to 5 weeks.

 

We have designed our one-time pottery classes so that our instructors give you personal attention and an exceptional first-time experience. The video above lets you know what to expect when you come by our studio. Instruction is designed for adults, however teens ages 13-17 may join if there is an adult with them taking the same class. 

 

(We like all participants to know that when working with clay there is a chance a pot may face challenges during firing. We try our best to make it right for you on the off chance this should happen to your piece.)

 

Suggestion: plan ahead - classes typically book full early, especially on a weekend.

 

  • Potter's Wheel classes: you'll make 2 pieces on the wheel. 

  • Wheel + Handbuilding classes: you'll make 1 piece on the wheel and 1 by handbuilding. (Sunday afternoons.)

 

POTTER'S WHEEL - In class, our instructor teaches the steps for throwing on the wheel - throwing, centering, drilling down, and pulling up the walls. Once you've tried a one-time pottery class, consider taking a six-week course where you learn to wedge, trim and glaze your own work.

 

HANDBUILDING - Experience the flexibility of handbuilding through slab techniques in our Wheel + Handbuilding class on Sundays. Looking for more handbuilding classes? Sign up for one of our six-week handbuilding courses - Introduction to Coil Building or Techniques in Slab and Pinch.
