If you're a green thumb, you've come to the right class. Our terracotta classes are perfect for making things for your garden, even that forest you're creating inside your house. Make your very own Olla pot for your plants or veggie garden. It's our oldest technology to date for irrigation with plant domestication.

About Olla Pots:
Ollas are unglazed terracotta pots you bury in the garden to help water your plants more efficiently. Ask your teacher for further information about Olla pots and decide if that is what you want to bring to life.

During this class, you will not only learn the mechanics of wheel throwing but also discover the versatility of working with terracotta as a clay body. Terracotta is commonly used for creating garden pots and porous pottery, so you can let your imagination run wild and make anything from incense holders to pot plants.

Our skilled and passionate teacher, Dyllan, will be there to guide you every step of the way. They will share techniques and methods that will help you bring your vision to life on the wheel. Don't worry if you're a beginner; our small class size ensures that you'll receive undivided attention and plenty of support throughout the process.

By the end of the class, you will have 1 to 2 fully thrown vessels completed and ready for firing. The process of creating porous terracotta pottery allows for a quicker turnaround time, meaning your pots will be ready to be picked up sooner.

At Clay Temple, we believe in nurturing your passion for pottery. Once you've completed our introductory class of "The Taming Of The Terracotta, " you'll receive a ticket and the opportunity to further your skills in our 6-week intensive wheel throwing course at a discounted rate. Please ask your teacher for further information.

Join us for a transformative experience in our wheel throwing class where you'll learn the art of pottery, create beautiful pieces, and take home your very own creations. Get your hands dirty, unleash your creativity, and let the magic of clay take you on a journey of self-expression.
