Parents or Grandparents & Children Together Among the many class offered are classes specifically geared for a parent or grandparent to work with a child on pottery projects. Interesting clay projects will be completed in these unique classes. The projects are constantly being varied so it is possible to reregister for classes as many times as you wish. The Pottery Studio is a robust fully functioning studio that offers classes for all levels and ages. Birthday Parties The kids will enjoy working in clay and will make a creation of their very own.
