Entry to studio

Pottery in Georgetown!

After a long wait, classes are resuming at our new location, adjacent to the venerable Blues Alley Jazz Club. This larger space allows us to expand beyond our wheel-throwing classes. The second floor studio gives us space to offer hand-building classes as well as to provide resident and associate work areas for those who prefer to work independently. Although there's still lots to do, our doors open on Saturday, July 16. You can get updates by following us on Facebook and Instagram.
