Clay Handbuilding

Come play in the mud!

Each month we list at least 2 workshops where, with the guidance of our skilled staff, you can create a piece from just a lump of clay!

Monthly Workshops

Each month we list a variety of workshops where you can create both functional and decorative pieces. We use 2 types of clay in the studio. Earthenware clay is a low fire clay that is great for everyday and decorative pieces that can be glazed with our low fire colorful glazes. Stoneware is a high fire, more durable clay that is great for pieces you want to endure weather or to be dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. Stonefire glazes are colorful and require a little extra instruction to apply.

No experience necessary

Studio owner and Charlotte, instruct our clay classes. They”ll lead you through the process from start to finish. You’ll learn to roll, pinch, score and slip the clay so that your piece turns out just the way you want it. We have all the tools you need to create beautiful textures and designs on your piece so it’s uniquely yours.

Clay Workshops are a 2 for one experience!

All of our clay workshops are priced to include both your initial clay workshop to hand build your piece and a second visit, during open studio hours, to glaze your piece. Hand Built items require 2 firings as well. First the initial bisque firing after you build your piece after which it will be ready to accept glaze. Then a second firing after you return to glaze your piece to make it shiny and finished. It takes 3-4 weeks to take your piece from a lump of clay to a finished piece that is ready to display or use in your home.

"It was our first time painting or even handling ceramics and we had a blast! The staff listened when we had questions and they answered them thoroughly."

"My daughter had her 13th birthday party here with friends. They did a glass fusing project. The staff was so attentive and helpful with the girls!"
