Alex was a fantastic instructor! She was very patient and gave step-by-step instructions. Easy to walk to from Downtown parking or park across the street. No need to worry about getting clothes dirty or anything. Very minimal splashing.

A very patient and knowledgeable instructor . A good 2-hour introductory lesson at an economical cost . I would recommend Clay's to anyone that has an interest in or is curious about pottery. For me it was a fun way to spend 2 hours on a Saturday while learning about pottery.

So much fun! The instructor and the people attending the class had great personalities! It takes 6 to 8 weeks to get the pieces you make, so it's definitely for locals, but it was still a highlight of my trip!

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.
