Book a One-Time Pottery Class

Our introductory One-Time classes are for beginners looking to explore the fun of creating pottery. Designed for adults (teens 13-17 may join with an adult taking the same class), the classes cost $75 and are two hours long. Our instructors walk you through the steps to create two pieces - once to teach you how, and a second time to let you practice the techniques you've just learned. At the end of class, select from our glaze options and we will fire and finish your pieces. Once your pieces are ready for pickup, we'll notify you by email - typically about 3-4 weeks. Scroll down for more details on the different classes offered.

About Our One-Time Classes


We offer two different One-Time classes - Potter's Wheel (throwing) and Creative Pottery (handbuilding). Read below for details on each of the different techniques.


Suggestion: plan ahead - classes typically book full two to three weeks out, especially on a weekend.

  • Creative Pottery class is on Tuesdays

  • Potter's Wheel classes are held Sunday mornings, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays

  • One-Time Wheel and Handbuilding is a combo class held Saturday mornings


Here's more detailed information about the two different techniques we teach in our one-time classes at Throw Clay LA:


POTTER'S WHEEL - Never thrown? Haven't since high school? Our fun one-time wheel class walks you through turning a piece of clay into a piece of pottery to treasure. In class, our instructor teaches the techniques for throwing on the wheel. You will have the opportunity to create two pieces on the potter's wheel. At the end of class you will select glaze colors for your pieces and we'll take care of the rest - two firings and applying your glaze choice. The video below lets you know what to expect when you come to the studio for the first time.


CREATIVE POTTERY - Experience the flexibility of handbuilding through slab techniques. Each week is a different project as we rotate through these four options:

  • 2 appetizer trays - entertain your friends

  • 2 pots for your favorite plants

  • 2 coffee mugs - make that tea if you wish

  • 2 artisan pots with lids made by you


COMBO CLASS - Saturday mornings at 10:00AM we offer a class that lets you try both creative techniques - one pot thrown, one pot handbuilt. We encourage you to try both wheel and creative pottery, and this class lets you try both in one session. Consider signing up for a six-week course once you know which form is your favorite.
