There is a Saturday afternoon drop-in class for ages 5-99 from 2-4pm (Sept 13 - Dec 20, 2014). One-time class for adults, children and families interested in experimenting with clay for the first time. Plan a great afternoon with friends, family, or just for you while exploring your inner artist in this fun and messy introduction to clay! Professional ceramic artists guide featured weekly projects. Projects take between 1.5- 2 hours. The price (including materials) is $25 for adult and $15 for children under 12. Projects can be glazed and fired for a $5 firing fee.

There is also a Mommy and Me Clay Class for ages 4-5 on Mondays from 10-11:30am (Session 1: Sept 15 - Oct 20. Session 2: Nov 3-Dec 1, 2014). Moms join in with our littlest students to explore the magical world of clay as they stamp roll and pinch to create unique clay projects. Parents and children work together to create collaborative clay pieces. Students will have imaginative clay play as they sculpt whimsical animals, wacky foods, maracas and more. Come ready to work alongside your child throughout the class.
