Tie-Dye Classes
Have you been looking for a super fun activity? Consider scheduling a tie-dye party with us. It's a great idea for a family get-together, a youth group, a scout troop, a birthday party, or even a group of friends. 
Never tie-dyed before? No problem! We will demonstrate various techniques and will assist you as needed. We use special fiber reactive dyes and all t-shirts will be pre-treated with a dye fixer to prevent fading. This means that your tie-dye shirts will keep their vibrant colors even after being washed!

Pre-pay for the sizes of shirts you'd like to tie-dye.
Show up at the studio ready to have fun.

Follow the directions for washing.
Wear your amazing shirt all the time!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Youth Sizes (YS, YM, YL) - $14 per shirt
Adult Sizes (S, M, L, XL) - $16 per shirt
Extended Sizes (2XL, 3XL) - $18 per shirt

Birthday Parties
Looking for a unique alternative for your child's next birthday party? Schedule it at The Pottery Room!
You are welcome to bring drinks, cake, decorations and presents. Party guests MUST paint before they eat as any food residue on their hands might damage the pieces they paint. We do not have a refrigerator or freezer, so please bring a cooler if you need to keep anything cold.

Parties are scheduled for a two hour block of time and can be held any day of the week.

Mondays-Saturdays
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Sundays
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

There is a $20.00 party fee to reserve your date and time. This fee includes:
* 2-hour block of time for your celebration
* A personalized birthday plate for the guest of honor (created by our staff)
* All clean-up after the event

There is no minimum number of painters for a birthday party. Guests can select from the many pieces on our shelves ($10 minimum), although most people choose to set a maximum dollar amount per painter. This gives your guests a wide selection - we really do have something for everyone!

Stop in or call the studio during business hours to schedule your event.


Field Trips
Students of all ages will enjoy coming to learn about the process clay goes through before being painted as well as our glazing and firing process. There are so many wonderful connections to science - physical and chemical properties and changes, states of matter, heat and energy, color and light. Not to mention the visual arts! We love hosting field trips at The Pottery Room!
In addition to painting a piece of pottery that they get to KEEP forever, students will be shown clay at various stages (liquid slip, raw clay, leather-hard clay, bone dry greenware, and prefired bisque). They will learn about the color changes that occur during the firing of their painted pieces. They will tour the kiln room, learn how and why we glaze each piece, and even see a pottery wheel demonstration (subject to our potter's availability).
Homeschool, public school, and private school groups are welcome!
Contact the studio for additional information, availability and pricing.
