Wednesday Drop-In Clay Class

Wednesdays from February 02, 2022 6:00PM - 8:00PM

Space is limited and tickets sell out very quickly, often immediately. If you’re not able to secure a spot, please try again next time.


Tickets are sold online starting at 10 am until they have sold out. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Customers may purchase up to two (2) tickets per transaction, while supplies last. We are currently limiting participation to age 18 and older.

Please check in at the Front Desk upon arrival for the class. Bring a piece of ID as you will be asked to produce one while checking in. If you have selected the Student or Gardiner Friends rate, you will be asked to produce the appropriate ID upon arrival for the class. Unless your membership is at the Friends & Family level or higher, each participant will require their own student or membership ID.


Our drop-in classes are perfect for potters of all levels. Experiment with various hand building, wheel throwing, and decorating techniques, and then take your creations home with you! You’ll have access to an experienced artist instructor in a professional ceramics studio, including a variety of tools, earthenware clay, and more than 70 commercial brushing glazes.

You will need to attend two (2) drop-in classes to create a glazed piece—the first for making and the second for glazing. Firing takes two (2) weeks and is generally done once after making and again after glazing. The minimum firing fee is $5, which can be paid at the Front Desk. The firing fee for works larger than 10 inches is $10. You do not have to fire or glaze your piece.

Picking up your piece

Clay pieces can ONLY be picked up during the following times:

Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm


Firing takes two weeks to complete, and pieces will be held for an additional 3 weeks. Please check in at the Front Desk and note that there may be a short wait depending on staff availability. We do not provide bags or boxes.
