I'm looking for a place (N. Raleigh or nearby) with a pottery studio where an amateur could make some pieces. I'm wanting a place with a wheel where they fire it for you, but not just a paint your own pre-made pieces type of thing. Thanks, y'all!

Claymakers Studio
A friend of mine is an amateur potter. He teaches some of the classes here at claymakers and I know you can rent space here. It's in Durham.

You can also try the Carrboro Arts Center. They have Open Studio times for people to go in and work on their own projects for a fee.

My wife did this and loved it. I think you can either take a class, in which you can use the facility all you want, or you can pay a small fee to use it. If I remember, it did not seem very unreasonable at all.
