Qué harás

Working with clay is mesmerizing - and challenging. After a tour of the studio, guests will don aprons and sit down at their own wheels to "throw" up to 5 pieces. We work "hands-on," with each person to insure that you make at least 1 or 2 beautiful vessels. If you decide that you want to "finish" your pieces, there are 4 more steps: trimming, bisqueing, glaze and high-firing. The process takes about a month, and the potters at FIRESTICK will do this work for you for a fee of $15 per piece. This price includes a glazing class, if you'd like to come back within 3 months, or you may select your colors (from more than 40 finishes) and we'll glaze for you. After that, we can ship your pottery anywhere in the country.

AS A SAFETY MEASURE, ALL POTTERY WORKSHOPS ARE LIMITED TO 8 PEOPLE. Wheels are placed far apart and masks are required. Our studio is "open-air" so dress appropriately!

HAND-BUILDING and SCULPTING. Some guests (especially kids under 10) prefer "handbuilding," rather than "throwing on the wheel." If you'd like a teacher to work with you or your kids on hand-building, please let us know in advance. The fee is the same.

Clay IS a Magical Material. Every student is different, and everyone receives individual instruction. You can make ANYTHING that you'd like, and our gallery will give you lots of ideas. Your only limitation is your imagination!

Ojai is a mecca for "seekers," with a history of alternative philosophy, respect for the environment, celebration of the arts. especially ceramics. We have a gallery, a sculpting room, 14 potters wheels, and 4 kilns. Guests are welcome to watch potters as they work, and might even be present for a "kiln opening." The Studio is surrounded by farms and fruit trees. You may pick oranges, peaches or pomegranates, when they're in season.

Had a great time throwing clay. Give them a call if you have any questions. Can't wait to go back and glaze my pots.

What a fun experience with some pottery to have for a lifetime of memories. The instructions were so clear are we loved getting to make 5 pieces each.

It was a whole lot of fun to play with clay. I was able to make a cup and a plate after numerous attempts. I also paid to have them finish glazing if my prices so I can’t wait to see how they come out!!

if you’re thinking about booking this experience, DO IT! My fiancé and I had an incredible time learning together and creating a few pieces with our awesome instructor. I was a little nervous at first but it’s super fun even when you mess up! We will most definitely be back for more, this is a bucket list kind of experience.

We did not get to experience ceramics. We arrived and the staff informed us they had no idea we were coming. The owner is having health issues and did not notify her staff. Please call ahead of time and speak to a person to confirm your experience.
