Burning Fork Studio, LLC, is pleased to announce that we are now offering creative party experiences for a variety of occasions—children’s and adults’ birthday parties, girls’ (or guys!) night out, bridal showers, date nights, or whatever you want to celebrate!
Burning Fork Pottery Parties allow participants to create their own original, hand-built, ceramic works of art, which we will then fire for you to pick up within about 2 weeks after your party. There are a variety of hand-building party plans to choose from at different price points.
(Hand-built pottery is pottery made by hand not on a wheel—the studio can offer wheel-throwing parties for up to four adults. Contact us for pricing options.)
All two-hour parties include the following services:
Classroom set up by Burning Fork Studio ~ Lesson provided by Lahla Deakins of Burning Fork Studio ~Use of Burning Fork Studio’s tools and materials ~ Bisque firing of student work ~Glazing (if included or purchased with party plan) ~ Finish firing of student work ~ Scheduled pick up time for finished pieces
You are welcome to bring your own snacks, beverages, party decorations, and music to set the mood for your event!
Hand-building party pricing options* for up to 10 people** (for a two-hour party):
A. Pottery party with choice of three glaze colors: $35 per person (no fewer than 5 people)
B. Pottery party with one glaze color option: $30 per person (no fewer than 5 people)
C. Pottery party with NO glaze option: $20 per person (no fewer than 5 people)
*Pricing may vary slightly depending on the project you choose and the number of people in your party (see options below). Please contact the studio to make sure your project option fits into the pricing category of your choice.
**If you would like to host a party with fewer than 5 people or more than 10 (the studio can handle large parties—ask about availability for your group), please contact Lahla Deakins for special pricing and project options.
A deposit of one half the total cost of your party is due two weeks before the party date to reserve your time slot.
Two weeks’ advance reservation is required for all parties of more than 5 people. For smaller parties, we know that sometimes you might not be able to plan that far ahead—just call to find out if you can have your party on shorter notice, depending on studio availability.
Party project options include (but are not limited to):
Magnets ~ House numbers or other wall plaques ~ Pinch pots ~ Coil pots ~ Slab pots ~ Mugs ~ Covered slab jars ~ Sculptures or masks (great for kids’ parties!) ~ OR-ask about creating a project idea of your own!
