Intro to Pottery wheel
With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****
Tasting menu in a small speakeasy apartment

Every menu is created the morning of the dining experience. Moreover for the curious of hearts, I would be cooking and baking dishes such as Beef wellington and dover sole bonne femme six feet away from your seats, giving you a true peek into the world of fine dining in top kitchens. All this is in an evening's worth of time spent leisurely drinking and eating delcious meal in great company and hopefully the best story to tell in the forseeable future.

Kindly message me first before booking if there are other exceptions that you see are not listed here.
