The Ceramics Program offers a safe and fun place to gather where clay, creativity, and community meet in a relaxing atmosphere. A variety of classes are available, including a one-day Beginning Wheel Throwing Boot Camp, to multi-session skill building on the potter’s wheel, to hand building series, to single-day classes, to no experience necessary make-it- take-it classes.

Open Studio membership is available for $35.00/month after prerequisite skills have been verified.

In the summer months, ceramic offerings also include a weekly clay project, suitable for all ages!
