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 work in 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 - it's great for getting in extra practice time.
Note: Kiln size determines piece size and firing schedule. Quantities at instructor discretion.

Please note: Any class three sessions or less does NOT include clay.
Drop-In Studio sessions are listed at the bottom of this page.
