Walk-in projects and How it works

Working with clay is simple and rewarding. We prepare clay slabs on which you imprint texture. A quick demo on texturing and a practice slab allows each guest to experiment before beginning their chosen project.  Project slabs are cut to the correct size with the aid of wooden templates. When you are finished texturing, you then construct your project. Our staff explains the whole process and will guide you along the way, providing help and encouragement. It’s fun. When you are finished building your project, you select a glaze choice from our test tile display. We do all the rest. Projects are dried, bisque fired, glazed and then fired again. Most projects are ready for picked up within 2 to 3 weeks. Shipping also available. No Reservations needed for individuals and small groups! Most guests spend an hour or two enjoying this process.

Our pricing is simple.  We offer a selection of daily walk-in projects ranging from $10 to $60.  Coaching and encouragement, as well as everything you need to complete your project is included with your purchase.
