Price: $20

Want to get those creative juices flowing without the mess at home! Stop in to the studio @Clay-King and make your masterpiece, between 10am - 4pm Monday-Saturday. Our staff will be here to guide you in basic processes and offer creative ideas, but the creation is all yours! Please call at least 1 day in advance for space availability - 864-308-8027.

How it Works

You receive a bag of clay that will allow you to make one or two (maybe more depending on your creativity!) pieces. You build the clay piece! Leave the piece(s) with us. We will let it dry thoroughly and fire it into a ceramic bisque piece.

In 2-3 weeks, we will call you to come in and paint your fired piece. After it is glazed, we will fire it again. If you have made something that will hold food, it will be food safe and washable after the second firing. After firing we will call you for pick up and you have a wonderful piece or two to take home and enjoy!!!

*Please note this is a handbuilding project not using the pottery wheels.
