I am a ceramic artist and teacher and have years of experience doing birthday parties.
My pottery birthday party events are fun for all ages. Your friends will be talking about it for weeks! Not only will everyone have a blast but they will also find it educational. The party can be designed with a wide range of ideas. The parties are hosted at your house. I will bring everything that is needed and clean up at the end. All I need is a table for the kids to sit at. Any surface that the clay touches will be covered in canvas.
The party is organized where the participants learn a hand building technique out of a flat slab or clay. They will then design and build an art project and select the glaze they like at the end.
Who: Kids six years and older or adults
•Minimum: Seven participants – fee for groups less than seven will be $315
•Maximum: 16 children or 12 adults (age 13 or older). With 11 kids or more an assistant will accompany me.
Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Set up: I would show up 30 min ahead of time to cover the table in canvas and lay out all the tools needed..
Cost: $45 per participant (includes firing fees)
Deposit: To save the date a $200 deposit is required. Balance is due the date of the party.
Glazing of the pottery: I will bring samples of the glazes I offer. At the end of the party I will work with the partiers to select the right color for their project.
Pottery Drop Off: The finishing process takes about two to three weeks. I will arrange to drop the projects off with the party organizer.
Areas served: Stamford, New Canaan, Norwalk, Darien, Greenwich, Westport, Wilton and Weston.

Jon and Rachel are a great team and very practiced at putting smiles on everyone’s faces!
Birthday parties aren’t just for kids!! Adults can design their own party with clay and wine and have an even better time.
