The Clay Lady’s Studio
The Clay Lady’s Studio is a 3,000 square foot studio designed to offer C/6 classes in pottery, hand- building, and sculpting. The studio holds 23 wheels, 7 kilns, two full size slab roller, extruder, and a full array of Opulence Glazes as well as tools and supplies for any clay endeavor. Our professional instructors are practicing potters with a heart of a teacher.
Taking pottery classes at the Clay Lady’s studio has been such a wonderful stress reliever for me. I had been considering it for a while when a friend bought me a gift certificate to nudge me that extra step to sign up for my first session. I’m so grateful she did because it’s now something I look forward to every week. I work all week long sitting at a desk and working on a computer. Then, for 3 hours each week, I am able to escape and create pottery with my hands and my imagination. The folks in the sessions with me are so friendly and Danielle – the Clay Lady – is a great teacher. She teaches with patience and expertise and is always so willing to go back over the material when a refresher is needed. Love it!
