Prepare to have a lot of fun and get a little messy but it's absolutely fine, the clay washes off! Also the shop is located on 1st street not elm! I'm unsure why after booking the reservation I was given a different address.

Prepare to get messy...we were offered aprons, which was nice! I wore an old sweatshirt. Wear shoes that you can wipe clean or throw in the washer.

I loved this place. I would just say arrive on time, and possibly a little early to park. My pieces didn't look amazing, but I had a great time, and would love to do it again.

From Our Editors

"The thing I like most about pottery is that it's a learned skill," says Clay Wood, the owner of the pottery studio that bears his name. "It's something you can just sit down, and practice, and just learn it. You don't have to be innately artsy or creative, it's just something that's learnable and fun for everyone."

It's true that Clay has had a bit of a head start in the art form: he began developing his classically harmonious ceramic forms starting at age 12. But he also knows what it's like to be just another weekend hobbyist. Before starting the shop, he had established a career managing high-rise condos while dreamily spinning his desk chair like a pottery wheel. Now that he's dug his hands back into the clay, he and his fellow instructors design adult and children's classes to meet the needs of aspiring ceramicists and more casual crafters alike.

All the throwing, glazing, and hand-building goes down in a colorful creativity zone bursting with incandescent designs. The studio is equipped with eight electric pottery wheels, two large hand-building tables, an entrancing in-wall kiln, and a wellspring of stunning glazes for both handmade projects and prepared forms awaiting only a painter's brush.
