In the Five Week Adult Clay Classes we work with handbuilding and slip casting in clay.We start the first session by Carole giving instruction on making a planter and work through the whole process of making, texturizing and glazing which enables the students to create their own projects in the following weeks.

You will work from slabs of clay, soft clay for pinch pots or coils and slip casting using some of my vintage plaster molds. As students, you direct what you want to make and we facilitate that! We fire everything for you in our kiln. The classes are informal and set in McCheek's studio.

Full instruction is given and no experience is necessary.

‘Ceramics and Champagne’ is a unique and exciting new way to celebrate for bridal showers.

You provide the champagne and any other refreshments you'd like, and we provide the clay and instruction, along with glasses, corkscrew, fridge and ice.

Get creative and make wedding favors or gifts for the new couple, such as:

- Gift tags for edible wedding favors
- Good luck/love tokens
- Save the date magnets
- Initials and date magnets
- Or anything else you can imagine! We welcome your own ideas, just ask in advance to see what is possible. Its all about getting together and having fun with the girls too!

Please contact us either by email or phone
to book your party

Full instruction is given and no experience is necessary.
While you are here for 2 – 3 hours, you create, paint and enjoy refreshments, we then fire and glaze all of your pieces and they will be ready for pick up in 2 weeks.
