Clay Play Day at Rivertown Pottery

Saturday | November 16 | 10:30am-5:30pm
252 E 8th St | Winona

You are invited to our studio at Rivertown Pottery in Winona, MN. Demonstrations and assistance in hand building your own pottery. There are two ticket types available. The sculptor pass, which will let you come play with clay. Or the tour pass, which lets you visit, shop, and see what’s going while keeping your hands nice and clean. For the sculptors, the pieces you create will be glazed and fired at a later date, which you are also welcome to attend. If you are unable to be here for this step we can set up a way to get you your finished piece.

Visit the eventbrite link above to sign up for a one hour time slot. No ticket needed to tour the studio or shop in the gallery. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. This activity is made possible through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council in cooperation with a private foundation.
