Class Description


What you'll learn in this pottery wheel class:

Throw clay on the potter's wheel in this one-time class in NYC.

Teachers will begin with introductions and move into a tour of how to use the space, tools, and equipment. Then, you will be shown a demonstration and learn clay terminology like coning, centering, and pulling. After watching the demo, you will sit at your own wheel and give it a go. As this is a crash course, participants are encouraged to be open-minded with the final products. You will be able to have several attempts, and if you like one of your creations, you can save it. The last few minutes of class are for clean up, and after you choose your one piece, you can also choose the glaze for it to be decorated in (by a staff member).

The work, fired, finished, and glazed, will be ready to pick up in one week. You have a 14-day grace period to pick up your works starting a week after class.

Whether you're looking for date night ideas, team-building activities, or just something fun to try this weekend, this pottery wheel class is a great option. Come sink your hands into some clay and make a piece of glazed pottery that you'll be sure to treasure!

Add-on available for this class:

  • If you need an extra piece to be fired, that would be an additional $20. You can request this during the class, and pay the amount at the same time.
Knowledge required:
  • None, totally beginner-friendly.
What you'll get:
  • Materials to work with, plus one fired piece that will be glazed for you.
What to bring:
  • Wear clothes you don't mind getting messy and tie your hair back. We suggest trimming your nails before the session and removing jewelry from your hands and wrists.

Refund Policy

No refunds, but can reschedule if student notifies us more than 24 hours before class.

    Booked pottery class for 4 on a Sunday for me and my sisters, no one was at the studio and it was fully closed. I tried to reach out to the studio with no answer, also reached out to coursehorse for a refund with no answer. $350 down the drain.
