Excellent instructors. The Groupon is a great way to see if you like it. The studio and people are very warm and friendly. I will definitely go back. I am not the creative or artsy type and I managed to make 8 bowls that I use every day !!

Word of caution: call the guild and ask for class availability before you purchase the Groupon. I was not able to get in for 3 months. That made it difficult to redeem with my schedule not being solid for work 3 months in advance. When the class comes I may not be able to attend. Additionally, I was told at redemption that only one KCCG Groupon may be purchased. Ever. Now, while I know individuals who have redeemed them annually, if this claim is to be enforced it needs to be clearly stated and consistantly enforced.

This place is run by a great group of people! Good instructions. Wheel throwing is fun but hard, and the class will give you a better appreciation for pottery for sure.

Very fun! My fourth class is tomorrow night and I'm sure I'll keep going. The people are so nice and laid back. While taking the class, even outside of time, you can come in and use the tools and studio. Todd is great!

This place is great! They are very low-key in the classes. If you want some extra tips, just ask! You can learn to throw, or keep up on your skills. When the class is finished, you can still go back and complete your started projects all the way through the final firing with glaze. Good people, great place, so fun. Get out there and do something new!

Great place to learn to throw pottery on the wheel. Our teacher, Michael, was extremely patient with the kids.

From Our Editors

In 1988, potter Michael Smith invited a small group of peers to his home to share ideas and further explore the art of clay manipulation. After just a few meetings, the group quickly grew to include around 70 craftspeople, who started meeting at the Kansas City Art Institute instead of inside Smith's giant conch shell. These regular get-togethers laid the groundwork for the initial incarnation of KC Clay Guild, a place where artists could socialize, buy materials in bulk, and learn from one another.

Now, the volunteer-run co-op is even larger. It occupies its own facility and has vastly expanded the number of services it provides. Amidst the changes, KC Clay Guild has remained true to its initial goals, guided by a mission statement to support the clay community. Artists of all skill levels enroll in classes that cover an array of techniques, such as wheel throwing, hand building, and slip casting. Members take part in regular meetings, open-studio time, and monthly shows, and visiting artists stop by to lead workshops and repair their ceramic automobiles. The guild even offers a scholarship to high-school seniors and hosts birthday parties, team-building exercises, and family-fun nights for casual potters.
