Have you ever wanted to try making your own bowls, cups, and plates? Now you can!
Come to Coyote Clay School and Studios for a lesson in throwing on a pottery wheel. You don't need to have any previous experience, so it's perfect for beginners. It's also great for those who have taken pottery classes before and want to get their hands on clay again.
Each class is limited to 10 students, so you will have lots of one-on-one time with your teacher. Classes are open to ages 10 and up, but children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
Three hours on the potter's wheel, including clay, use of tools, and bisque, costs only $34 dollars! Students in this class can also come back to glaze and fire their bisqued pieces at student rates, and get a 10% discount when signing up for our six week class.
