Use of tools and up to one bag of clay are included; extra fees based on the size of the piece will apply for firing and glazing. Classes can be scheduled from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday–Thursday and at 9 a.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Create in Clay School of Ceramics

Entrenched in the eclectic North Oakland and Berkeley art scene, Create in Clay School of Ceramics unites a fine-arts gallery of locally produced wares and an art-instruction facility under one roof. Inside the roomy studio, master ceramicists impart pottery-forging know-how to students, who perch behind 10 ceramics wheels and multiple hand-building stations as they create, glaze, and fire custom pieces. The seasoned artisans tailor each tutorial’s subject matter to guests’ individual skill level, striving to keep class sizes small to ensure unrestricted interaction and afford pupils the chance to ask questions about what to do when clay is haunted by ghosts.
