What you'll do

We require hand washing upon entry, and require masks. We'll introduce ourselves and we will give you a tour of our professional studio and kiln area to have an insider's view of how pottery is made and tour our gallery. Your instructor is an Atlanta ceramic artist, our studio is an incubator for those launching careers as artists selling their work.

We'll have a short demonstration then an artist will guide you to make pots of your own. You will make 2-3 pots over the course of the next hour+ then you will get to select your own glaze colors for us to finish and fire your work. Unlike other experiences - there are no extra fees for extra pots! Great for groups or couples.

Since pottery takes several weeks to dry, then proceeds with two firings - pottery that you make during your event will be ready in about 6 weeks. Local pick-up is free. We can give an estimate for US shipping rates while you are here, international deliveries will require more exacting details for shipping rates and will require a follow-up email and/or invoice. Average US shipping is between $15 and $20. Your instructor will be in touch when your pottery is complete.

This experience is kid-friendly for ages 8+ but we do ask that you are booking in the morning slot if you have kids. No bookings will be accepted for kids with no adults present. Thank you!

In our pottery-making experience, you will be working directly with professionals who are making and selling their work in galleries, art festivals, and online. My co-hosts are artists here in our studio full-time. Meredith, Molly, Caroline, and Niki are my fabulous co-hosts. We are passionate about what we do and hope that we can bring that passion and fresh understanding of handmade ceramic work.

Our studio turned 21 this year :) We are a diverse, inclusive maker space that hosts Airbnb experiences, date nights, and has a studio membership program.

    Nikki was our instructor and she was so welcoming, funny, and helpful. I am ready to get a membership at their studio after this experience. Also they made me feel very safe with COVID measures.

    The experience was a great value overall! I learned a lot and am looking forward to seeing my final pieces in 6 weeks. Every person from the group I went with really enjoyed it! I will definitely recommend this to more of my friends, and some have already requested information about this from seeing my instagram story.

    What a fun time! I have never done pottery before but this class was very clear and informational. With Molly's instruction I was able to complete a couple of awesome things that turned out great. I can't wait to go again.

    If you’ve been wanting to try out pottery, definitely give this experience a go! Super helpful and patient instructors. We ended up with a couple cute bowls and mugs. Can’t wait to see the finished product in a few weeks!
