Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to get personalized attention and instruction, one-on-one with one of our fantastic instructors. Whether it is your first time touching clay or you are working toward perfecting your craft, we'd love to help. You can focus on the specific skills and techniques you’d like to learn ... or just have fun playing with clay for a few hours.

Private lessons are a great flexible alternative if our regular group classes don’t fit your schedule, and are also perfect team-building exercises if you want to have some relaxing, creative fun with your coworkers.


Our "Introduction to the Pottery Wheel" private lesson is taught by Coco Spadoni, our top-rated instructor. They will guide you through a fun hands-on lesson that covers the basics of wheel throwing: wedging, centering, opening, and raising. And at the end of your lesson, you can pick the best of your new creations to be trimmed, glazed, and fired! (Your piece will usually be ready in about two weeks.)

We also have instructors who specialize in hand-building, surface decoration, and many other pottery techniques. If you're looking for
