Available Themes for Kids Parties

Ages 8-16

Hand Building

Explore the fascinating world of hand-building with clay. There is nothing like getting your hands dirty into a lump of clay and seeing what is formed when you use a little bit of creativity and a whole lot of imagination. Experiment with multiple techniques, tools, and textures while making animals or monsters or mugs. It’s easy, fun and highly creative.

Party Animal Package

There is something so fun and fulfilling about finding your favorite animal in a lump of clay.  But they are a bit hard to find so we offer helpful and patient instruction, so that every child leaves having made several animals they are happy with. Once you leave our studio we put the creations in our kiln and fire them, Then based on each child’s choices, we glaze each animal and fire them again, making them strong and shiny, and long lasting. (pieces need to be fired twice so they won’t be able to pick up their creations for 3 weeks).

It’s a party that is fun for all ages and experience level, even adults.

$240 – for 6 potters  + $40 for each additional potter, max 16

Mug Package

Creating a functional piece of drinkware is not only practical, it’s fun! Learn how you can transform a slab of clay into a beautiful (and useable!) drinking mug! We, of course, provide lots of helpful and patient instruction, so that everyone leaves, having made at least one lovely flowery tile (if that’s the end result they wanted). Once you leave, we kiln fire your creations, then we glaze them and fire them again, making them strong, shiny, and durable. (pieces need to be fired twice so they won’t be able to pick up their creations for 3 weeks).

Monsters Makers Party

We have noticed many children like to create really really ugly creatures. There is no other description for them except to call them “monsters”.  And ya know what, it’s a lot fun creating them too.  We of course provide lots of helpful and patient instruction, so that everyone leaves, having made several hideous monsters. Once you leave, we kiln fire your creations, then we glaze them and fire them again, making them strong, shiny, and durable.

We love to help kids create something that’s not only beautiful but useable! Jewelry trays can be used to put dress up jewels, necklaces, rings… or anything else that girl in your life needs.  We, of course, provide lots of helpful and patient instruction, so that everyone leaves, having made at least one lovely flowery tile (if that’s the end result they wanted). Once you leave, we kiln fire your creations, then we glaze them and fire them again, making them strong, shiny, and durable.

Wheel Throwing Party

Throwing clay on the wheel is super fun but it takes a lot of instruction and guidance. That’s why we limit these parties to 6 potters at a time. It’s a lot of fun and we guarantee you’ll laugh a lot (There are frustrating aspects of throwing and we encourage each guest to laugh about it and not take it seriously, flops are gonna happen, they still happen to us here who do this all the time)  but each artist will leave having made at least one thrown item they’ll be proud of.

We of course provide lots of clay (Lots of pre-made balls so there can be lots of tries) and we offer group and then one-on-one patient instruction, so everyone will leave knowing the basics of throwing with some confidence to try it again in the future.. Once you leave, we kiln fire your creations, then we glaze them and fire them again, making them strong, shiny, and durable. (pieces need to be fired twice so they won’t be able to pick up their creations for 3 weeks).

$300 – up to 6 potters +$50 for each additional potter,  max 8
