Dedicated to meaningful results, Community Clay's Pottery Courses are meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive learning experience. Rejecting anything less than an 8-week commitment, their curriculum is carefully curated to maximize skill development. The overarching goal is not just to teach the techniques but to instill an intuitive understanding of working with clay, allowing individuals to craft vessels with love and precision.
For those seeking a more flexible practice, Community Clay offers Drop-ins, a 3-hour self-directed session available to studio members with active memberships or enrolled students. Membership, which is billed monthly with an automatically renewing cycle, requires an initial 3-month commitment at all levels.
The Drop-in Schedule accommodates the diverse schedules of members, running seven days a week in the morning, mid-afternoon, and evening. Conveniently, the schedule and sign-up details are accessible online, with comprehensive instructions provided during the course.
