Fun to see what everybody came up with and I love my bowl! Went back and took a fish making class. Maybe more fun... More

While on vacation, our group did a pottery class at Kinnakeet Clay Works. It was one of the highlights of my trip. All my friends at home were impressed with my creation - thanks to our wonderful class instructor. Can't wait to do it again on our trip in 2016!

We had a group of 6 (max per class is 7)... Tricia was a fabulous teacher - patient and very helpful. Antoinette (the owner) was so personable and... More

This was my first time visiting the Outerbanks and saw good reviews for Kinnakeet Clay so we booked a class for about 8 of us to make our own pottery... It was the best part of vacation and would definitely recommend to others! Tricia was so helpful in making the pottery. The next time I come to the Outerbanks it... More

My husband had won a gift card on their Facebook page and when we visited in October, we thought we would stop in. It is a very quaint shop and the workers were very helpful. Tons of interesting things to look at. We used our gift card and then some! We will stop back on our visit in October again... More
