How many glaze options are there? Can I put two glazes on one vessel?

In our pottery shop, we have twelve glaze options. Please remember that due to the nature of glaze, each piece will be unique and will not look exactly the same as the one on the shelf. Due to the specific glazing technique we use, we cannot put multiple glazes on one vessel. Check out all our glaze options here.

How will I receive my finished piece?

We ship all our students’ work through USPS.

Why is there a wait time to receive finished pieces?

Unlike painting or drawing, pottery requires a multi-step finishing process. Watch this video to see all the phases your piece will go through.

What is the maximum number of students per class?

We usually keep our pottery classes limited to 6 students per class. If your party is larger than 6, please contact us directly at so we can accommodate you.

What should I wear to my class?

Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little muddy, though it will wash out! We provide aprons for adults and children, as well as a towel for the lap of every student.

When do I pay for the pottery class?

We ask that you pay once your class is complete and you’re happy with your vessel and your experience!
