Once we confirm your event date and time are available, we will send you an invoice for the deposit.

What If I Have More Than 14 Potters?

Will We Get Messy? What Should We Wear?
You will get messy from the elbows down. So short sleeves or sleeves you can roll up are recommended. Don't wear watches or bracelets, rings are ok.
Keep in mind that you will need to straddle the pottery wheel, so leggings or comfortable pants are suggested.
Sometimes shoes can get splashed with water or clay so you can either take them off or wear shoes that you don't mind getting messy.
Clay doesn't typically stain clothes but we do have a limited number of aprons available if needed.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
MAKING HANDMADE POTTERY TAKES TIME AND THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES!
Smashed Clay projects and experiences are designed using our proprietary method, techniques and tools to help jumpstart your project.
However, it takes years to learn the art of handmade pottery. While we hope your finished project turns out exactly as you envisioned, there is no guarantee that your handmade pottery will make it through the entire process and/or result in what you set out to make.
Thick pottery may take longer to dry. Pottery that is too thick, too thin or constructed in a manner that creates stress during the drying or firing process may crack, break or explode. Pottery can take 2-3+ weeks to dry, prepare and bisque fire.
