One-day workshops are a great opportunity to connect with friends and loved-ones in a creative environment. CyclePottery Workshops teach students how to throw functional stoneware pieces such as cups, bowls, and plates on the potter’s’ wheel and hand build clay projects with guest ceramic artists.

In addition to day-of instruction, workshop fees includes the cost of post-workshop tasks, such as trimming, bisque-firing, glazing, and the final firing of student pieces. Details differ per workshop. See below.

*Pieces are ready for pick-up approximately three weeks after the day of the workshop.

Workshops By Request

Family Workshop, Friends Night Out, Date Night, and More!

What would you like to do at CyclePottery with your friends and family and special ones?!  2 hour workshop rates for 2-6 people are below. Typical workshops start with a wheel throwing demonstration and guided help by the instructor to complete your own pot!  Hand building projects can be the focus as well or in addition to the wheel.  Workshops with more than 6 people can be tailored according to the event needs and budget. Generally held on the weekends between 2pm-9pm, but other times can be arranged. The studio is small, and we don’t close the studio to other studio potters and students unless you’d like to arrange for a private party.  I am happy to discuss rates!  We once held a bridal shower for 22 people!

2 hour workshop for 2 people: $150; Each additional family member or friend is $30.
