Once Fired

Local potter Michelle Young has thrown a selection of bisque fired pottery pieces available for purchase and customization. These projects are PERFECT gifts for all ages. Fun, easy and so unique.
Parents must remain with children during the session.

Prices Dependent on Project Selection. $10 - $44 per piece


How it works: 
1. You call GRA and register for a time slot (10 am or 11 am) 
2. You select a pottery piece
3. You use underglaze to decorate the surface with the guidance of GRA Staff
(it usually takes between 45 min - 1.5 hours)
4. We fire the piece & you come back to get it in a week
5. You enjoy your food safe, custom designed, hand thrown pottery!

Call 320-632-0960 to claim your spot!
