Want to switch up your typical Saturday night plans? Grab your date, friend, family member or come solo and meet some new friends at our Sip & Spin workshop. Hang out, pour a drink and try your hand at the potter's wheel as the instructor walks you through the art of making a cup or bowl. No experience is necessary to make your new creation (it could be a coffee mug, a new water bowl for your favorite furry friend or maybe just an artistic creation open to interpretation). Come ready to have fun, get a little messy and laugh while having the exclusive opportunity to learn about the store owner, Gina DeSantis and hear her story.

What do you need to know?
The event is BYOB and you are welcome to bring snacks too.
The cost includes all of your supplies (glaze and clays) and your firings.
You will get to throw a cup or bowl on the wheel then decorate your work with slips and underglazes. The staff will clear glaze and fire your work for you so that everything is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
Your work can be picked up from the store 3-4 weeks after the event.
Parking: On-site in the West Parking lot.
