Our instructor was nice and had a sense of humor. Don't leave your belongings in their communal area because I lost my ring somehow. I never got it back at all.

I bought the clay session for my mothers birthday and it was a blast. We both loved it and had so much fun learning something new. The instructor was very helpful and patient with everyone and did a great job. I liked it so much I think I'm going to get one for me and my boyfriend to go do it together!

Really kind instructors and very flexible with making arrangements for the visit. Located in a cute spot in Long Beach where you can dine and shop after the class.

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.
