Fat Cat Pottery Welcomes You !

Have you ever wished you had the time and space to try your hand at pottery?

Think of Fat Cat Pottery as your own pottery studio.

In addition to regular classes, you can use our studio and equipment by the hour, or you can become a member - the monthly cardholder membership lets you use the studio when it is convenient for you.

Here is everything you could want in a large modern studio - electric and kick wheels, kilns, slab rollers, extruders, work tables and glazing areas, clay wedging tables. The energy here is wonderful and very creative. All the potters at Fat Cat are willing to help newer members to get comfortable with the studio and find anything they are looking for, some will even share their techniques.

Fat Cat also offers classes . Many find that the all technique Class is a wonderful way to begin. it is extremely soothing to the soul to form clay into works of art from a small chuck of clay in to something useful.  Throwing classes (working on the potters wheel) and Raku classes provide different techniques of forming or  building and all classes learn about glazing. Our classes are available every sixes weeks, but sign up early for the one you want soon because classes are limited and fill quickly.  See our class schedule

We hope you enjoy the tour. Please come by for a visit - we are only a few minutes from downtown Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, and Carolina Beach, North Carolina.
