Pottery Wheel Workshop Kid & Parent Throwdown |

You spoke & we listened! Our first parent & child workshop! Get muddy with your kid in our 2 hour pottery wheel workshop. No commitment, just a muddy good time!
Make the most of Spring & Summer by experiencing throwing on the pottery wheel. Take a pottery wheel out for a test drive, no license needed! The workshop is lead by an instructor who will help centre the clay and teach you tips & tricks. Make a bowl, tumbler or vase! Everyone has the opportunity to make up to 4 pieces. Go with the flow of the clay and get muddy. Registration is for one parent and one child to throw on the wheel. Choose from one of the above dates for your throw down. We recommend children be 4+ years old. Would you like to bring an extra kid? Please call us at 613-541-1156 or email clay@amaranthstoneware.com
There's lots you can make on the wheel and it's all fun! If this is your first time go with the flow of the clay. Everyone makes roughly 2-4 pieces of pottery. It can range from abstract vases to bowls, pet dishes or tumblers. We do not have a size restriction for height or width of your pieces! How this workshop works
  • Sign up online, over the phone or by visiting the studio.
  • Day of: Dress for Mess! We recommend wearing clothes you can get muddy in. Think rainy day gardening muddy.
  • Show up 5-15 minutes early. We promise we're friendly, there's lots to see in our studio PLUS sometimes there are dogs here!
  • The teacher will demo the wheel and give you an overview as to how it works. They can be hands on and will help centre clay for you.
  • Cleanup is a shared activity. Everyone lends a hand and is responsible for cleaning their space.
Is it your first time?
THAT IS AWESOME! We love sharing our love of clay and everything we've learned through years & years (and more years) of playing with clay. This workshop is fantastic for trying out the wheel and introducing yourself to pottery. If it's your first time or even second, don't put any pressure on yourself. Just have fun or get meditative and go with the flow of the clay. If you have questions about pottery before, during or after the class then please ask us!
Hot Tips
  • Rings and wrist jewellery can make it hard to throw as well as long fingernails!
  • DRESS FOR MESS! Or bring a change of clothes
Pick Up There's a saying  "nothing like pottery to teach you patience". We trim bisque fire, glaze & glaze fire your pieces for you. Pieces usually take 2-3 weeks. We email everyone when the pieces are ready for pick up. We fire according to size and best fit in the kiln. You pieces will be initialled so give yourself time to find them when you come! Explore you Creativity with Clay and Have Fun Getting Muddy!
