Open Clay Classes Every Thursday

Thursdays 1:00 p.m.  - 3:00 p.m.

 This is an ongoing class, and a really approachable way to introduce yourself to clay, pottery and ceramics. Students will build an item with clay, glaze and fire it.

 The price is $30 for the first hour.  Any additional time is $5 per hour including the time spent glazing the item.

Note: You will need to come in more than one day for handbuilding as the clay pieces need to dry before they can be fired.

This class is by appointment only so please call us at 956-761-2112, email us at, or Facebook us.
