Date Nights, Ninth Anniversaries and Fun Get Togethers at Brookside Pottery Downtown

Date nights, get togethers and fun experiences in pottery at Brookside Pottery Downtown

Yes its fun. Life is all about experiences and I can make a clay date happen for lovers, friends and or family. Yes, I still do this and enjoy it immensely.
This makes a great gift any time of the year.  You can bring your own alcohol to share while you work and I'll show you how to either throw on the potters wheel. yes just like on Ghosts, kinda, lol or we can hand build a vase, bowl or clay mask.

The experience takes about an hour and a half and there are severely restaurants nearby if you want to  go out for a special meal afterwards. We set this up by appointment and as long as I'm available, I can make it happen at a mutually agreed time.  I am spontaneous so if this is a last minute plan lots of times it still works out.

Basically it is $50 per person to come make your creations and that includes materials and tools to use.  You have to leave the pieces with me to dry and be fired in the kiln.  Then you choose.  Do you want another date at half price, $25 each to glaze or do you want me to glaze it for you at $15 each or do you want to just come pick up your work and hang on to it and decide later. Its all fine.

If you want to have this fun opportunity you need no prior experience but if you have some, that is fine as well.

Call me at 918 697-6364 or email me at

We can make it happen.

Fun Date nights making pottery in Tulsa Oklahoma

Brookside Pottery Downtown makes for a fun date!

We will get together and come up with a time that works for us all and make pots.  Ive been doing this for a while and it is really fun.  I love playing cupid.  Just call and I can answer questions about how this works. All you need is to bring each other and something to drink if you like. I provide the fun and instruction.

    First we pick a project and i show you how to make it. We play in the clay.  Then I'll take your picture, you and your pots, send it to you and you have to leave the pots at my shop to dry and be fired because it is the real thing.  We work from bags of clay, not pre made molded ceramics. 

 We can either do a hand made project or throw on the potters wheel, a unique experience and yes i will play the theme song from Ghosts by special request.

  Next you decide if you want to choose a color and I glaze for you or if you want to come back for a second date.  Or you can store your creative adventures and decide later after the first firing. 

 Real pottery has to be fired twice, once to remove the water and make it stone like and once to apply the glaze which is the layer of glass on the surface of the pottery.  

It is really fun and I love getting to know people who want to play with clay.  It makes a great first date and you can go next door at Tavola's for dinner later if you want a delicious and convenient place to eat or your choice.  I have also hosted Birthday party dates, anniversaries and you know number 9 has a pottery theme.  I'm flexible and spontaneous and we can make this happen.
The basic info for fee etc is listed below.

Date Night by appointment. Get to know each other while working on a clay project. Champagne suggested.  $50 per person, per evening, materials included.  May need to return to glaze with 2nd date unless we plan otherwise.
