What you'll learn in this handbuilding class:

This is a terrific introductory class to working with clay, no prior experience is required.

Important Thing to Note:

  • All pieces you make will be ready for pick up in about three weeks after the event.
  • Please note that the price is per couple.
Q: Is this class hands on or demonstration only?
This is a hands on class.

Q: When will the pieces I make be ready to take home?
All pieces you make at Mugi Studio will be ready for pick up in about three weeks after completion.

Q: Is this BYOB?
A: No. The school does not encourage drinking (or eating) during the class as this is a hands-on class and the students are engaged in making the project. Most people choose to go out for drinks or dinner after the class.

Q: Is there a firing fee?
The price of $125 per couple includes the cost of firing your pieces as well.

Hello, I know that you can return to pick up the pieces in 3 weeks. How does the glazing process work? Is it also included?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Glazing is included and Mugi Studio will glaze it for the students.
Question from Nikita S.
What do you mean by a $50 non-refundable deposit at the time of registration, and does the $125 course price already include the $25 firing fee?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Nikita, Sorry for any confusion here! For the Couples Night - Handbuilding Pottery class, you have no additional costs to pay aside from the $125 course price. The $50 non-refundable deposit (which is now updated to $75) does not apply to this course, and the $25 firing fee is already included in the course price. Hope this helps!
Question from Lizyvette V.
Is this class solely a hand building class? The student will not use a wheel?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, solely a hand-building class. The students will use various hand-building techniques of pinching, coiling, and slabs.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 9/23/2018
The class was fun but I didn't feel like I learned anything new. I would've liked to see a few more techniques of how they make stuff in the studio and a bit of information about the glazing process. It was definitely not worth 125. And I wouldn't recommend this class to anyone

This was a fun way to spend a couple of hours and i like that it culminates with you each making something you can have in your home. Maybe not to share with guests(i'm not an artist) but its a nice keepsake from a fun date night.
