Always wanted to try your hand at the potter’s wheel? Need a quick refresher on that ceramics class you took in high school? Join us for a creative evening playing on the potter’s wheel. Participants will learn the basics of centering clay and throwing bowls and cylinders on the wheel. This fun and informative workshop is designed for those who are curious about clay or want to further their skills without the commitment of a class.  

Your finished pieces will be bisque-fired and glazed for you. All work will be ready for pick up three weeks after the class. 

Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Each registration includes clay, tools, glaze, and firing costs for one participant. No outside clay or glazes permitted. 

If a class or workshop is sold out, you may request to be added to the waitlist by emailing [email protected]. Please be sure to include the class name and date(s) in your email. 

Union Project is committed to being accessible to all. The building is wheelchair accessible via the side door on Stanton Avenue, and an accessible parking spot is located just outside that door. Service animals are always welcome, and ASL interpretation can be provided on request. Please let us know what accommodations we can make to ensure your experience is positive, contact Michelle Clesse at 412-363-4550 or [email protected] if you have specific accommodations or needs.
