Pottery Wheel Lessons

Have you always wanted to learn to make a pot on the potter’s wheel but weren't sure where to start? Want to plan a unique date night activity? Joe Picasso's is where you need to be!  Whether you call it throwing pots, spinning clay or that thing from the movie "Ghost" it's all the same and lots of fun to do!

Joe Picasso's offers the opportunity to try your hand at making pottery on the wheel with guided lessons for one or more. Schedule an appointment with one of our pottery wheel instructors and they'll give you a hands on demonstration, explaining the steps you’ll be taking, then walk you through step by step while you make your  very own piece of pottery on the wheel.

 One on one with our instructor, a fun date idea or a one of a kind party, we can arrange for just about anything. 

Give us a call at 954-462-2551 or stop in for more information or to make an appointment.

Throwing on the wheel can get a little messy and we have aprons but you may still get some clay on you. While clay washes out of most fabrics, you probably don't want to wear your Sunday best. Also keep hand and wrist jewelry to a minimum and those with long hair should wear it pulled back.

Come with an open mind and you'll have a great time! Throwing the perfect pot on the wheel takes practice.  Our wheel instructors have been doing this for years so even though they may make it look easy, it took them a long time to get to their skill level. Relax and have fun!

All clay pieces need to slowly dry before being fired in our kiln and will be ready 2 weeks from the day of your pottery wheel lesson appointment. Shipping is available.

Due to the physical nature of throwing pots on the wheel, we limit our classes to ages 7 and up. Some individuals with physical limitations may not be able to fully participate.

Please Note:

Spaces are not guaranteed without preregistration. Classes start promptly at scheduled time so please arrive a few minutes early to get settled in.  Arriving late for an appointment may reduce length of lessons. Cancellations must be made during store hours and in person or via live phone conversation at least 48 hours prior to class for deposit refund. We do not issue refunds for missed classes. 

Joe Picasso’s reserves the right to cancel, combine or reschedule classes to adjust for enrollment or instructor availability when necessary. If it is necessary to cancel a class for any reason, all registered participants will be informed immediately and extended the opportunity to transfer to another class or receive a full refund for that class.
