About the class

Ever wanted to try your hand at the potter’s wheel, but not quite ready to dive into an 8 week class yet? Our Wine and Wheel nights offer the best environment to dabble in this new endeavor, while enjoying some local wine and cheese while you’re at it. Sign up yourself and a partner, friend, sibling… to experience it together! Wine and Wheel students are able to keep one creation of their choosing from the evening to have it fired and glazed by the Sonoma Ceramics staff and made ready for pickup. 

A perfect holiday gift for you and a loved one! (please note; each ticket is only for 1 adult, if you are signing up 2 people, please choose quantity 2 at checkout)

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
