We have updated our pandemic protocols because of the new health recommendations from the CDC and local health officials guidance on Cape Cod, as well as for the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff and teachers.

This is your chance to finally experience the wonderful world of clay! Learn the basics of making both bowls and mugs on the wheel. Beyond wheel throwing we will also learn to complete the process by beautifying our pieces in the glazing process. All of your treasures completed in this class will be microwave and dishwasher safe. (In case you were wondering) Absolutely no experience necessary, but if you have been out of the game for a long time, or you just want a refresher, this is your class!
