Choose a Friday at least 2 weeks in advance: Adult Wheel Throwing

Wheel throwing takes practice, but everyone needs a little instruction to get started.  Spend an hour on a Friday night (after 5 pm) learning how to prep the wheel, center and form a cup.

Then come in Saturday to trim the bottom (free of charge) or get an Open Studio Pass and use the wheel as much as you like whenever we are open.  Wheels cannot be used without an intro class.  Classes must be registered for at least two weeks in advance to secure a spot.

This class is one guided session.  You pick the date by putting it in the notes section at check out.  If you would like more guided lessons add as many to your cart as you would like and include those dates as well.


Back to Sku’ Raku

Stop in between open hours of 1-7 on Friday (or after-hours until 9 pm for 18+) and select an abandoned pottery piece to raku glaze.
Then join us starting at noon on Saturday to fire them in our raku kiln in the parking lot. The firing process is a temperature watching situation, so bring a lawn chair and something to drink while we wait for the heat.
