Ceramics  

 Are you looking to try your hand at pottery? ACE’s air-conditioned clay studio  features 13 wheels and 3 large kilns. Best of all, we have patient,  experienced  teachers to help those of any level — beginning to expert —  refine their technique.  Come join our supportive environment and learn why  this medium is so addicting!  Learn the wheel, or focus on handbuilding and  sculpture; or try a little of both.  Drop-in studio times are offered several  times per week for those currently  registered in another class, for extra  practice time.
 Note: Kiln size determines piece size and firing schedule. Quantities at  instructor  discretion. Any class three sessions or less does NOT include clay.
 Please note: Any class three sessions or less does NOT include clay.
 Drop-In Studios are listed at the bottom of this page.
