Garage Clay Lessons - Photo cred: Danielle Lopez Photography

Grab a pal and join Claire + Elise for an intensive pottery wheel throwing lesson. During your two hour wheel time, you and a friend will get one-on-one instruction on how to create two [or more] unique ceramic pieces. At your Clay Day you will learn about the entire ceramic making process – start to finish, while having a helluva good time. After your throwing lesson, Garage Clay will finish + glaze your work and have it ready for you to pick up within 1 month.

group handbuilding workshops

Join us on the Garage Clay outdoor patio for monthly small group handbuilding workshops! At the end of each workshop, Garage Clay will bisque fire, glaze, and glaze fire your pottery piece and have it ready for you to pick up + enjoy within three weeks. If weather does not allow for the workshop to be held outside, we will move the workshop indoors.
