Tour + Hands-On Workshop

In response to covid-19

As part of our response to COVID-19, we are postponing all 2020 onsite tours and hands-on workshops until further notice. If you have additional questions, please contact us at

The Education Studio remains in academic recess through April 30th. We will update that date if Michigan's Stay Home, Stay Safe order is extended.

Guided Tours

Gather a group together for a one-hour tour through our National Historic Landmark pottery building to experience the history of Pewabic and our making process. You will be guided through our studio to see where the clay is made, tiles are pressed and glazed, and the kilns where pieces are fired. Explore our museum and exhibition space to see historic Pewabic ceramics and contemporary ceramic art. 

Guided tours have a $100 minimum fee. This fee covers the first 20 people in your party. Additional participants cost $5 per person. Reservations and a deposit are required to schedule a tour. 

While we cannot accommodate walk-in docent-led tour groups, we do offer self guided tours seven days a week. To see our production space be sure to visit Monday - Friday.

To schedule a guided tour, please call 313.626.2062, or email

Hands-On Workshops

Make your tour experience more memorable by adding a hands-on workshop. After completing the tour your group will head to our Workshop Studio, where you’ll learn the basics of tile-making. We provide the clay and basic supplies needed.

Hands-on workshops are for groups of 10 or more and cost $20 per person. They last approximately two hours. Finished tiles will be available for pick up in 4-6 weeks.
