Located in the beautiful Cherry Building in downtown Cedar Rapids, we offer venue space for your party as well as a clay/glass activity for your guests.
We offer you the unique opportunity to create a work of art, with professional party venue.
We'll provide you with clay and let your imagination do the rest! We'll be there to guide and inspire you. Look around and you will see lots of great project ideas. You can make something functional like a mug/plate or a decorative piece such as a wall hanging/sculpture. Choose colors for your piece from our studio glazes. The result will be a one-of-a-kind creation. After the party we will fire the piece for you and notify you when your piece is ready for pickup.
Join us in the studio for some wine, light appetizers. We'll teach you a bit about clay or glass and you can get a little dirty - and have a lot of fun. No experience is necessary. In each class you will create a piece of art that is yours to keep, we will let you know when to stop back in to pick up your finished/fired piece. Wine and appetizers are included in the registration fee.
Second Friday of every Month from 6:30-9:30 pm
