01 about

SPUN is owned and operated by local artists April Sanders (Lotus+Sprocket Ceramics) and Jennifer English (Dustybttms).

Created in a garage over cocktails, a pottery wheel, and a notepad. The idea for SPUN came together quickly because we were already living it; hanging out, inviting friends over, being creative and sharing with one another. Every other pottery class we've taken just …wasn't ‘us’. We wanted a place to belong, a place to get encouragement, but in an environment where we felt comfortable. We wanted to be surrounded by music and local artists in ripped jeans and band t-shirts...and beer.

For the beginner or advanced potter, or those who enjoy getting dirty. SPUN is here to provide a patient, inclusive, casual, and creative environment.
We look forward to meeting you!

Private Lessons: $100 per person

Click Here to book online!

  • Whether you've never touched clay before, or you just need a refresher course, this option is for you! 

  • This is an intimate, 1.5 hour class; one student (age 16 and over) to one instructor. 

  • For beginners, we start the lesson with centering the clay (the most important part of wheel throwing). Then we move on to other core pottery techniques to ensure your success.

  • For more advanced folks, we start the lesson discussing areas where you feel you may need a refresher or additional training and move on from there! 

  • Please note that everyone moves at a different pace. Most beginning students will be able to throw on their own at the end of the hour. However, some students may require another session to feel more confident. 

Studio Time and Glazing Time: $10 per hour
