Clay Handbuilding Parties

Home / Birthday Parties / Clay Handbuilding Parties

Celebrate your birthday at Crack Pot Studio and enjoy being royalty for the day in a private studio space!

Our experienced pottery teacher guides guests through the process of creating their own unique piece from clay. Guests will experiment with hand building and sculpting techniques including slab, coil or pinching. Next, party guests will decorate and add colour to their creations. Once fired, pottery creations are food and drink safe! Each piece will be individually wrapped, labelled with the guest’s name and boxed for pick up in approximately two weeks.
