The Pigeon and The Hen Pottery

A paint your own pottery and wheel throwing studio in South Bend

How it works: Every guest gets a guided chance to throw a pot on the pottery wheel. (Throwing a pot is the term potters use when creating on the wheel). After the class, we will fire your pottery once(bisque fire). The pots will be unfinished white bisque pottery and you will pick them up in bisque form and take them home. At your earliest convenience return to The Pigeon & The Hen Pottery and paint them. All materials are non-toxic and the paint washes out of clothes.
