My wife had been wanting to take a ceramics class for sometime now. Clay provided the perfect introductory class. It was fun, upbeat, and easy. Perfect date night idea.

I don't remember the name of my instructor, but she was so helpful. She made the class very enjoyable. I didn't think working with clay would be so difficult, but it was definitely worthwhile to learn the different techniques needed to make different items. I didn't get anything glazed out of embarrassment for my lack of talent, but I regret it now, as it would've been a cute momento of my experience. As the class was working on their bowls, there were others working on more intricate pieces, which was definitely inspiring. I came with my boyfriend for both our first time. I definitely give this location, staff, experience a 10/10 and hope more people visit the facility. Support your local businesses and artists! Things to note if this is your first time visiting: 1. Dress in clothing you don't mind getting dirty. It looks cool to go to dinner afterward covered in dry clay, and it washes off easily. 2. If you have hair, BRING A HAIR TIE! 3. It can get warm inside, so something cool and comfortable is probs best.

About Clay


"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.
