All About Clay

Outside of scheduled classes, registration allows you access to scheduled open studio times. All tools and materials are at your disposal with the exception of the clay itself. Pieces will be fired within two weeks at no cost unless they are unusually large or numerous.

Perfect for all skill sets from ceramics beginners who want to learn the basics to clay experts who want to try more advanced techniques.
