YES, you will get messy!

Please note that wheel throwing is messy, please dress for a mess--including your shoes!

Wheel Rental:

On-sight wheel rental is available to those who have had prior experience with wheel throwing.
$10 per day + $1/pound for clay/firing. Glazing and second firing is extra ($5 per item) A reservation is required at least one week prior to use.
  • Use our tools or bring your own.
  • You must purchase clay in our studio for use on the wheel 
  • Wheel rental time is available for 1.5 hours per rental
  • Please note, we require you to have a wheel consultation (takes about 10-15 minutes prior to allowing you to use our wheel.) The consultation will be with our wheel instructor and it will be a mini test just to make sure you remember the steps for throwing on the wheel. If it's been more than 3 years since you have used a wheel we suggest taking a beginner/refresher lesson prior to renting the wheel for use.

We also have packages for multi-use rental. Check with our staff for gift certificate or package options.
