Family Sampler

Join us in the studio for some family fun. During this workshop everyone will get to try their hand at two new Pearl City Clay House activities, glazing in our paint-your-own-pottery space, and making a luminary from clay using a simple slab building technique in our ceramics studio. Our friendly staff will be on hand to guide you and provide expert instruction along the way. You’ll get to create two keepsakes, some wonderful family memories, and the best part, no mess to clean up at home!

After the workshop everything will go through our kilns and be fired, and we will email you when it is ready to pick up.

The activities are suitable for most ages, we will be using glazes, paintbrushes, and our hands in the clay.

Football slab party

Here at Pearl City Clay House we are getting ready to cheer on our Bills with some unique platters and mugs for our super bowl spreads. Come join Darcie in the studio Saturday late night to get busy creating some slab built wonders to impress all your guests. We’ll roll out the slabs, you round up your friends and come enjoy a creative time out! We will use a build and glaze process that will mean your creations will be all ready for when the Bills make the big game. This is a late night adult party event, BYOB and let’s get muddy!

Working with clay can get messy, we recommend you wear an apron and bring a non-terrycloth towel or bandana to wipe your hands.
