Friends & Family

Want a creative night out with your friends? Do your employees need a lift? Are you looking for a unique party idea?

Grab your friends, work team or family and set up a one-of-a kind ceramic workshop to suit your personal interests.

Spark Special Events can host 8 to 20 guests at our studio and include all the tools necessary, expert instruction and firings. Or we can come to you!

Projects are suitable for all levels, focus on hand building, and follow a methodical art making process developed by Spark Ceramics. Our workshops guide students through an exciting and expressive art making process.  No experience is necessary!

We love to customize our events… Bring us your ideas. This is a list of ideas to get you thinking.
