Wheel Lessons with Kevin Matthews

Wheel lessons are designed to give you access to the studio during walk in studio hours or non-store hours. The cost of a wheel lesson is $39 for the first hour and $25 per hour thereafter. There is an additional $25 per hour fee for requested private lessons and lessons on Friday nights, Saturday nights and Sunday nights after 5pm.


The cost of your lesson includes: wheel use, clay for your lesson and tools. An additional $18 per piece (about a two pounds of clay) for glazing and firing will be added if you decide to keep your masterpiece! Bring your own towel and smock!!!! We allow you to bring your own food and beverages. No alcohol during walk-in hours.

 

After your class, we have to let the pieces dry thoroughly. If your pieces have any remaining moisture or the kiln is too full when we fire the next kiln, they will wait until the following firing. We usually fire greenware (dry but raw clay) to bisque (ceramic clay) around every 14 days depending on fullness of kiln. I do NOT fire parcial kilns unless you pay a partial kiln firing fee of $45, we ask that you call or text to be sure before making the trip in case it did not make it into the kiln yet.


Once your pieces have been fired to bisque, you can come in and paint your piece and it should be fired in 7 to 14 days, we will text or call you. Kevin Matthews Pottery / Glaze 2 Amaze is not responsible for the unpainted pieces left unfinished longer than 60 days from the time KMP or G2A texts or calls you after they come out of the bisque kiln. You can come in and paint your pieces within the 60 days during walk-in hours or contact us and schedule a no cost reservation time.
