The Pottery Studio is a robust fully functioning studio that offers classes for all levels and ages. We have classes for individuals and for families wanting to work on projects together.

For adult classes, the first 25 lbs. of clay is provided. More clay can be purchased at the Studio for $22. Only clay purchased from the Pottery Studio is fired. A basic tool kit ($12) needs to be purchased at the first class if you don’t already own your own hand tools. Large tools and project specific tools are provided, as well as a slab-roller and two extruders with many different dies. Glazes, slips, stains and engobes provided. Specialty tools and higher end hand tools are also available for purchase. Note: All work must be accomplished at the Studio. Production work is not permitted.
Lab is for current students to practice or finish work in progress. Anyone who has taken classes at the Pottery Studio may register as a lab student. This is a recreational and educational facility; production work is not permitted. Staff is in attendance, but no formal instruction provided. The Studio is open for 20 hours of lab time per week; students may use up to 10 hours of lab time per week. Note: Lab fee includes 25 lbs. of clay. Lab hours are for adults only. Open lab times are not available for students enrolled in the Sampler Class.
