Create pottery with an Atlanta artist

Decatur, United States

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Deanna

2 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Because of Covid-19, we require hand washing upon entry, and you will be asked to wear a mask. We'll introduce ourselves and we will give you a tour of our professional studio and kiln area to have an insider's view of how pottery is made. Your instructor is an Atlanta ceramic artist, our studio is an incubator for those launching careers as instructors and as artists selling their work.

We'll have a short demonstration then a studio artist will guide you to make pots of your own. You will make 2-3 pots over the course of the next hour+ then you will get to select your own glaze colors for us to finish and fire your work. Unlike other experiences - there are no extra fees for extra pots!

Since pottery takes several weeks to dry, then proceeds with two firings - pottery that you make during your event will be ready in about 6 weeks. Local pick up is free. We can give an estimate for US shipping rates while you are here, international deliveries will require more exacting details for shipping rates and will require a follow-up email and/or invoice. Average US shipping is between $15 and $20. Your instructor will be in touch when your pottery is complete.

This experience is kid-friendly for ages 8+ but we do ask that you are booking in the morning slot if you have kids. No bookings will be accepted for kids with no adults present. Thank you!

Please arrive on time and masked.

I've been working with clay since 1999 in the retail ceramic supply industry and have owned our studio here since 2013. I co-own MudFire pottery studio in Decatur GA with my partner. I am a published author in the ceramic field and work on large scale commission and restaurant pottery projects. Our space is home to resident artists who are learning the craft of pottery and starting small businesses on their own. I just wrote my first book on the topic of ceramic glazes available on Amazon - Off the Shelf / Outside the Box.

Our studio turned 20 this year :)

You will be working with instructors who are making and selling their work in galleries, trade-shows, art festivals, and online. Some are resident artists here in our studio full-time. Meredith, Molly, Christina, and Niki are our fabulous co-hosts.

I was the only one who showed up so I got a personal experience. You get a tour of the studio and then she demos how to make things and then you get to work! It’s challenging but she was always there to help and guide! Then I picked out what colors I wanted and now I wait 4-6 weeks and then I pick up my items. I was able to make two cups and a small plate. It was so fun!
