Frequently asked questions

What COVID precautions are currently in place?


Group sessions have an extremely limited capacity-10. These sessions are currently held outside, overlooking a walking trail. Each party is seated at their own table, with their own tools and supplies, socially distanced from each other's table. All tools are disinfected between sessions, all linens professionally laundered and surfaces cleaned. Hand sanitizer is readily available as well as bathrooms for hand washing. Masks are required.




Are you currently offering classes?


Yes. Please find all offerings HERE. Please keep in mind these are subject to change with evolving public health protocols.




How do I use a Groupon?


Groupons are for the Pinch session. Reserve your date HERE.




Can I use my Groupon for any sessions other than the Pinch?

The Pinch experience utlizes our hands to create pottery in a traditional manner. The Pottery Wheel is where we sit down at one of those spinny things and create.

Of course, please select pickup during your checkout. You can walk into the market, or pull up to the specail parking by the entrance for curbside pickups.
