Pottery parties are private lessons designed for 2 - 10 participants.
Cost: The cost of pottery parties is dependent on the age and number of participants, as well as the duration of the party.
$200 base fee for 2 hours of studio time
$20/child (ages 4-13)
$35/adult (ages 14+)
$50 per 30 minutes of extra studio time, if needed*
Example 1: A 3-hour party for 6 adults will cost $510 = $200 base fee + ($35 x 6 adults) + $100 for extra studio time
Example 2: A 2-hour party for 8 children will cost $360 = $200 base fee + ($20 x 8 children)
*Children's parties typically run for 2 hours, occasionally 2.5 hours, while adult parties typically run for 3 hours.
A down payment of $200 will be required to reserve a booking. This payment is fully refundable if the party is cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the start date. If the party is cancelled 24 hours or less prior to the start date, a late cancellation fee of $50 will be subtracted from your refund.
You are welcome to bring refreshments to the studio!
Kids parties must be supervised by an adult. Aimee will be there to lead the creative project, but there must be at least one other adult present to help keep things running as smoothly as possible.
Pottery parties will focus on hand-building techniques and there are several project ideas that you can choose from!
After the party, all pieces will be clear glazed by Aimee at the studio and ready for pick up in about 3-4 weeks.
These private, personalized sessions are meant for one-on-one time with the instructor.
Wheel throwing: $160 / 2 hours
This is an excellent introduction to wheel throwing! Your thrown piece/s will be trimmed and glaze fired for you with your choice of glaze.
Hand-building: $135 / 2 hours
There are 3 methods of hand-building that may be taught, depending on your interests and what you wish to create:
1. Slab building
2. Coil building
3. the Pinch Pot method
What to bring:
The studio is equipped with all the necessities. However, you may choose to bring your own apron and wear clothing/shoes that you don't mind getting a bit muddy! (don't worry, it washes out)
If you have long hair, it should be tied up and out of the way (especially for wheel throwing). Short nails are also recommended.
