We have updated our pandemic protocols because of the new health recommendations from the CDC and local health officials guidance on Cape Cod, as well as for the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff and teachers.

Have you ever wanted to try throwing clay on the wheel, or have you taken a beginning class, but aren’t quite ready to jump into the more advanced classes?  In this 8-week class we’ll cover the basics of throwing and trimming, and explore various decorative techniques including glazing, underglazing, carving, and sgraffito.  No experience necessary!
