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.

Class includes up to 25 lbs. of clay. Additional clay is available for purchase. There is an upcharge for porcelain clay. All clay and glazes must be provided by ACE (no outside clay or glazes allowed).

ACE is a teaching pottery studio, not a production studio. The firing schedule and quantities are controlled by the Lab Technician.
