Open Studio is Back!
Open Studio offers a place to connect with your creative self among others who are also exploring the possibilities with the clay medium. These evenings are non-instructional. Everything you need is available for hand-building (extruders, slab rollers, and banding wheels), and five wheels are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Purchase 2, 4 or 6 sessions at a time.

We have classes for everyone! These classes run for 6 weeks and teach you the fundamentals of throwing or hand building. You will get your hands in the earth and dive into a clay experience that will leave you grounded!
Do you want to get your hands into the earth but don’t have time for a full-class series? We heard you! We’ve developed a few short theme-based workshops to tease and tantalize. We have throwing and hand-building workshops for everyone!
