Best Rentable Pottery Wheel: Queen City Clay

Best Rentable Pottery Wheel

Queen City Clay offers pottery classes, demonstrations and goods for sale to nurture the human impulse to create. And in this day and age, when hand-thrown ceramics are all the rage in functional design, why not try to make your own? The studio offers intensive eight- and 12-week classes to teach novices and increasingly advanced artists how to hand-build, wheel-throw, sculpt and fire their own clay creations. If you’re feeling less motivated, you can rent Queen City Clay for private parties or attend an Open Wheel Session — no experience required. During Open Wheel nights, the second and fourth Saturday of the month, skip pre-dinner cocktails and get your hands dirty with some exploratory clay play. Feel free to bring drinks and snacks, too. Queen City Clay, 3130 Wasson Road, Hyde Park, 513-871-2529, queencityclay.com.
