Clay Classes, Workshops, & Community Studio




We offer intensive workshops that specialize in specific areas of study. Unlike our longer classes, workshops typically run the duration of 1 to 3 days and give you more concentrated exposure to a specific artist, topic, or technique. Our goal is to bring you different viewpoints from instructors around the region and country for high quality demonstrations and hands on workshops.
