We offer birthday parties   

Sign up for one on Saturdays 10:30-12 or 2:00-3:30!

Cost: $18 a child, minimum is 6 children and maximum is 14.

  • Contact us by filling out the form below.  Indicate your time and Saturday preference below.  Please contact us ASAP to schedule your birthday party–we offer limited dates and they go fast.  For kids 16 and under.
  • After we have confirmed your date and time, we will send you a link to reserve your date and time with a $60 deposit–refundable up to 72 hours before your party date.  
  • Send out the invites!  We also recommend adding on the invite that they should bring along a large t-shirt to wear over their party clothes, because getting messy is half the fun!
  • Show up!  We will have instructors designated just for your party to teach the group and help move things along.  We will even do the clean up–the kids are also welcome to help with clean up!  
  • Our kiln managers will then dry and fire your items.  This process takes 3 weeks to properly dry and fire the works.  You will then just stop in and pick up your items!


“Had my daughter’s birthday party at TCC and it was a blast!! The kids really liked that they were able to create their own special piece…I would highly recommend anyone to book a party there and would even like to go back myself with my friends!! Can’t wait to go back again!”
