“The Clay Studio is the greatest fun! Whether you are artistically gifted, or not (like me), there is something for you. You can throw pots and come back and decorate them, or choose from ready stock to decorate. Also, I love the vintage feel of the place- from the mismatched dining room feel, to the Haeger & Stangl pottery pieces to wash your brushes in. It feels like being at your friend’s house.”

Appointments are needed ONLY for groups with more than 5 people.
