Our creative classes are designed to help everyone, no matter their perceived artistic ability, to make something memorable.
How much does it cost?
We only charge for the price of the piece selected. There is no additional studio or sitting fees. We do have some specialty glazes that can be purchased separately and some advanced glazes that require an additional firing charge.
