We are test-driving online hand-building classes for kids with our first ever online class on June 5, 2020 at 11am – We are hoping to offer classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11am and 2pm. Look for more HERE. We will be posting some for the rest of June.

The class fee varies per project but usually is $15 – $20/ participant. The fee includes instruction and all materials needed. Parents will need to provide a dish of water and newspaper or a craft mat to protect the work area. Classes are appropriate for ages 6 and up! We will offer contact free pick up for your project a couple of days before the class.

If you would like us to fire and glaze your finished piece, there will be an additional $10 firing fee per piece created. We will provide drop off instructions with your kit.

Parents’ Night Out! – One-time class $75
Date: The last Saturday of the month!


An Evening of Pizza & Pottery for kids

Enjoy a date night, a night out with friends, or even a quiet evening at home while your kid creates pottery, digs into yummy pizza, and maybe makes a new friend or two at Good Dirt LA. We’d love to see familiar faces, but are also hoping to meet a few new budding artists.

INTRO TO POTTERY – One-time class: $65


Please check MINDBODY (link above) for the most recent schedule and to sign up.

If you’re brand new to working with clay or would like to become more familiar with pottery techniques before enrolling in either our regular and ongoing 4-week or 12-week sessions, then we highly recommend taking this introductory class. You’ll learn the basics behind the buzzwords (i.e. coiling, handbuilding, throwing, glazing and firing) and will be guided step-by-step through all processes. Our teachers would love for you to create pieces that reflect your individuality, and are always happy to show you how to incorporate more intricate handbuilding techniques into your work.
