Parties

Parties at the Pottery Lab are a wonderful and unique experience. Each participant is assisted by our experienced staff in making several of their own works of art that we'll finish, fire and return to the host. Come join us for a wonderful, fun and creative celebration!

The Pottery Lab offers parties in hand-building or wheel-throwing.
Please see details below for the specific information on hand-building versus wheel-throwing events.

To schedule your next party, call (720) 379-6033 or email contact@studioartsboulder.org


HAND-BUILDING PARTIES

Kids' Birthday Parties

Youth hand-building parties are two hours long and require 6 to 12 participants. Available times include:  Saturday between 2pm – 5pm or Sunday 10am – 5pm (occasionally we can accommodate other days and times; please give us a call if you have questions.) The two hours typically include one hour of working in clay with a short demonstration, followed by a quick clean up, and then time for food, cake and presents. This is only an example; we are happy to work with you to create your ideal experience!

Clay pieces that are created during the party will be bisque fired, clear glazed, and fired again. We will call you to pick up all artwork when the pieces are finished. The entire process typically takes two weeks.  

Price: $25 per participant

Grown-up Gatherings

Adult hand-building parties follow the same structure as kids’ birthday parties, but have a greater focus on clay than cake and presents and can be developed to support the needs and intention of the group. We offer gatherings for families, friends, company team building events, etc., for adults young and old. Give us a call and we can make a plan!

Price: Begins at $25 per participant, adjusted according to length, size and type of event. Minimum of 6 people required.


WHEEL-THROWING PARTIES

Wheel-throwing parties are offered for kids (ages 8 and up) and adults, and include a demonstration that will introduce everyone to the basics of wheel-throwing. Wheel-throwing parties are only available on Saturday evenings and MUST be scheduled 2 months in advance of the party date, in order to reserve the space in the Lab. Please call for details (720-379-6033).
 

All parties require a $30 deposit to hold the date, which will go towards your final payment.
