Play with clay - in Wheel Time

You have the basics, you just need practice. No problem. Our wheels are available to rent by the hour. Book you wheel by the hour -$25. Wheel must be left in condition you found it when starting your hour. We have two wheels for booking. This is time for wheel use, not instruction. Wheel experience or a booked class necessary to book time on the wheel. 

We wish everyone sucess on the wheel - but it is a learning experience through trial and error. Practice makes perfect.

A simple orientation class is required before you can start your time on the wheel. This means your time can be spent hands on - and not wondering where we keep the supplies and our procedures.  Please book your orientation session online: Orientation is free of charge with purchase of bag of clay or supplies. 

 "Wheely" Good Deal

Buy a sixteen hour session pack for $320. That is an $80 savings. One person per "Wheely" good deal. Hours can not be shared or split. 


All clay fired in our Kiln must be purchased at Meanding Maker. This way we know what temperature and can avoid Kiln Mishaps.
