About Our Business
Morfar Pottery offers wheel throwing classes and hand building in Rolla, MO at 630 S. Bishop Avenue. Wheel classes are limited to 4 people so all can be on a wheel at the same time without someone waiting their turn. Instruction, tools, clay, and firing is included in the class fee. $20/person for a 1 hour class or $30/person for a 2 hour class. Open hours are Monday and Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm-7:30pm, Saturday mornings from 10am-noon and other days and times by appointment. Some students find 3 classes sufficient to go through the steps for having an experience of making an item. The first class is for the making/shaping of the clay on the wheel. The second class about a week later for trimming. A third class a few weeks later for glazing. Other students want to hone skills in making and will take multiple classes in a month to do so. Open studio time is available for individuals seeking wheel time without instruction. Workshops and group parties are welcomed.
