    Get a little dirty on a pottery date night! We create the mood music, provide materials and pottery making help to create what you feel like – brie baker, ornament, or something else that inspires you. Any couples qualify, but class limited to only 4 couples. Come as a group with friends, but don’t hold out too long as we expect classes to fill fast. No experience required, though advanced potters will have as much fun showing their partners what they love doing! Aprons suggested but not required. All pieces will be made and decorated with underglaze that evening. The final pieces will be clear glazed and available for pickup after fired in the kiln (instructor will give info for pickup). BYOB – bring your own beverage and snacks if you like – to share only with your partner. Price is for 2 people.
