BrickHouse Ceramic Art Center is a unique place to celebrate any occasion! We offer parties for groups of children or adults.

All ages and experience levels delight in playing with clay. Whether it's a party for children, bachelorettes, friends, family, or team building, you’ll have a great time creating an original piece of pottery you can use and enjoy forever. You’ll learn to make a bowl, mug, plate or even sculpture! The party can be customized to your requirements.

A typical pottery party is held in one session where you will make your own art object from wet clay.  

Your artwork will take approximately one week to dry, depending on thickness, before it can be kiln fired for the first time. After the first firing, studio staff will glaze your work and fire it a second time. Artwork can usually be picked up 3 weeks after your event.

Thirty minutes of party time is included for you to enjoy the refreshments you bring or have delivered to BrickHouse. 

We provide the space and instruction for your party and an area for you to set up your refreshments. Any refreshments you’d like to enjoy during your party, including food and drinks or wine and beer for adult parties, are up to you to bring or have delivered to the studio.

We do not provide food or paper goods. You need to supply and set up the party items (table cover, cups, napkins, forks, etc.)


A total of 2 hours - 1 ½ hours workshop time and a ½ hour for party time. Please remember that the time allotted for your refreshments is only 30 minutes and plan accordingly.

Pieces made during private lessons and parties are bisqued, glazed, and finished by the instructors unless students pay for an additional lesson to glaze their pieces themselves.  Glazes go through a chemical reaction in a kiln that reaches 2,165 degrees. Handmade pottery will inherently have varied surfaces and can have unpredictable glaze results. BrickHouse will not be responsible for any pieces that break during the multiple firings, or if pieces do not fit the student’s aesthetic expectations. 


Refund requests must be made via email or in person. There is a $35 processing fee for all refundsMissed classes are non-refundable.
