Wheeling All Sunday Long

Fire Escape Studio  is introducing 2 hour time slots  for our wheel sessions all Sunday long. Please call ahead to book. 

Wheel sessions are available for individuals and pairs. These are instructor led orientations that are designed to give just a taste of what it is like to throw pottery on the 'wheel'. We charge $35 per person, this includes instruction, materials, and kiln services.  

Wheeling After-Hours

Instructor led 2 hour wheel orientations continue to be available. These are super relaxed sessions done after the studio's normal painting times are over. This is when our wheel instructor can talk  more indepth about ceramic arts. We will take you on a brief studio tour; this is a behind the scenes look at our kilns and slip casting process. These incomperably informative sessions are $40 per person and also includes wheel  instruction, materials, and kiln services.
