Four Steps to Creating a Custom Ceramics Experience in the Artillery Studio !

Are you in search of a group experience for your family, friend group, office, class, or community group?

We're here to make your group's intentions & clay dream a reality

Follow the four easy steps below to create your custom ceramics workshop!

Step 1: Collective Intention

Contemplate the intention behind your gathering:

Are you commemorating an occasion?

Trying to break the ice with a new team?

Want to foster communication and collaboration? Think deep.

Clay is a capacious medium--it can hold what you need.

Step 2: Ceramics Creation

Think of a ceramics project for your group to create. At Artillery, we honor nature, our culture and our communities. We're inspired by gratitude for the elements that allow us to create; clay, water, air and fire.

Join us in gratitude, or look for inspiration in the reason for your gathering. If you would like to speak to an instructor at Artillery to brainstorm, just give us a call! Here are some ideas to get started--just remember--with clay, anything is possible.

  • Create a ceramics vessel to beautify a shared space

  • Skulls for Día De Los Muertos/Halloween

  • Forage for clay at a local beach

  • Make ornaments or tokens for each person to carry with them or hang in their office

  • Craft a gratitude vessel to honor one of the four elements

  • Conduct a gift exchange--everyone makes a cup, planter, catch-all dish, vase, candle or incense holder for another member of the group

Step 3: Mi Casa o Su Casa?

Decide where you would like to host this event.

Our creative home, Artillery Ceramics Studio and Garden is open to groups. We can also come to you!

Some perks of coming to our space:

  • Private Studio - If your session is before noon the studio will be private to your group.

  • Playlist- Bring a custom Spotify playlist to listen to while creating.

  • Garden - Bring your own food and drinks to enjoy in the garden 15 minutes before your class and/or 30 minutes after.

  • Fire Pit- In our garden we have a fire pit that you can enjoy after.

  • Mission District Food - There are plenty of amazing places to grab a bite to eat before or after your session that are walking distance! Stay tuned for our recommendation list.

  • Vibes- We are a community creative space--Step inside and you'll feel the energy of creation and inspiration coursing through the studio. Create whilst immersed in beautiful paintings and clay creations.

Step 4: Create a Budget Price Based on Customizations

We value serving all folks no matter what their budget is, so our prices are based upon the customizations you choose. Pick a budget per person and the best time and day that works for your group, and we'll work together to make something special at any price range.

We look forward to creating an unforgettable experience with you!
