We are excited to add "Come try it" to our programming at Maine Prairie Studio. This year we are offering three different opportunities for a hands-on experience in our studio. These are free classes that anyone can register for.
All ‘Come Try it’ classes are first come, first serve. Please register and come try something new! The classes are two hours long, with a morning and afternoon option for each one. Register for either but not both.
Come Try it classes:
April 1- Come Try it, Slab Cups
New to clay? Never been to Maine Prairie Studio? Well, come try our class on making a slab cup. By the end of your 2 hour class each participant will have a slab cup. After the class, we will bisque, glaze and glaze fire everyone's cups. Participants will be contacted to come pick up their finished pieces at a later date.

July 22 - Come Try it, Potters Wheel
Never tried the potter's wheel? Well, come try our class on the potter’s wheel. By the end of your 2 hour class each participant will have a piece made on the wheel….maybe with a little help from us too! After the class, we will bisque, glaze and glaze fire everyone's pieces. Participants will be contacted to come pick up their finished pottery at a later date.

October 21st - Come try it, Wood Firing
What’s wood firing? Well, sign up to come to our fall wood firing and check it out!. By the end of your 2 hour class each participant will have experienced an introduction to wood firing and wood fired pottery. Participants will help out around the firing and be around participating potters firing the kiln. We think it's pretty neat!
