Wheel Throwing at Open Studio!

Learn to throw a pot on the wheel with artist Mark Vander Heide. 25.00 per child includes 1 hour of open studio with a 15 minute mini lesson on the wheel. The pot your child throws on the wheel will be clear glazed and fired (included in this fee). 

During the rest of your hour, enjoy hand building with clay and adding color using underglazes! We will fire hand built pieces at an additional fee of 5-9.00. 

Your items will be clear glazed, fired and ready for pick up in about 2-3 weeks. Email to reserve your spot! 

Open studio is a time to make, explore, try things out, and use your imagination. Most families stay for about 1 hour. Open studio is best suited for children ages 2-10, but we are happy to give suggestions to older makers. Families attend together, and adult supervision is required. Each week we will explore a different material or media. Starting in June, we will be offering clay as an option. See Open Studio page for more details and pricing information. We also offer open studio Fridays 12-5. Feel free to RSVP by emailing
