Our studio offers instruction in wheel throwing, hand building pottery and fused glass. Classes are booked on a first come, first served basis according to subject -- for example, if you are the first one to book a class on Thursday at 3pm for wheel throwing, everyone else does wheel throwing. We can, however, accommodate several others for non-clay lessons simultaneously depending on teacher avai

lability. The studio is also available for special events and groups, such as scouts, home school students, summer camps, Schools Out Day Camp during the school year, birthday parties, bridal showers, and more. Our gallery area features our own and other local handcrafted art work.

What a treat to come inn today, unload the kiln and be greeted by these pieces!!!
My students, in particular my first time students, truly go through a personal journey when they realize how much goes into creating a piece of art. Yet, when they relax and begin to tip their toes into the work of creating, the end results are beautiful. Not just the art they produced but, the self realization that they themselves did make that thing with their own hands driven by their imagination. ♥️

JEWELED JUNE

June could be considered the jewel of summer. Just getting warm, yet still wet enough that everything is shimmering green like different shades of emeralds. Beautiful, jeweled colors are what you can experience at the ClayGround. June brings the rainbows of Pride on Saturday June 1st, the brown/black/white/grey of paw prints of Paws for Pa on Father’s Day, June 16th and the banging bright colors of music of The Ladybug Music Festival on Saturday, June 29th. Jewels - what we can see, feel and learn from each other when we’re open to it. Join us at the ClayGround for our special events or ongoing classes for your bedazzlement.
