Wheel Throwing Private Parties
We've been getting requests for Private Parties in the Wheel Throwing Room. So here's what we can offer: For ages 12 years and up, and adults. Maximum group size is 10 people for clay work.
- We have 9 wheels available, but a group of 10 would work if 2 people share a wheel.
- Plan on a 2-hour party. Plan to get messy.
- Everyone will sign a Release of Liability Waiver upon arriving.
- A brief demonstration on the wheel will be given by an instructor, followed by everyone giving a pottery wheel a spin.
- Staff will be on hand to help.
- Everyone would get a 2 lb. ball of clay that is ready to throw on a wheel. Participants may make more than one piece but would pick no more than their 2 favorites.
- There are five glaze colors to choose from. We (the staff of Clay Art Space) will trim the bottom, kiln fire, and dip glaze all the pieces after the party is over. Individuals may not paint or glaze their own wheel-made items from these events.
- If food and drinks are part of your groups event, you may bring all the food and drinks for your party and have use of a clean room for laying out the party foods and drinks for an additional $50. Also, you provide plates, cups, flatware, and napkins if needed to serve and consume. Everyone can eat first, grab a drink and head to the wheel room.
- The host of the party will return in 2-8 weeks to pick up all the items to distribute to their group, after we call you to let you know they are done.
- Kiln firing times vary and not all pieces fit into the same kiln firing, so it can take a while to get all the pieces fired sometimes.
