Entry to studio

New location!

Our new studio is adjacent to the venerable Blues Alley Jazz Club. Built as a stable, this larger space lets us expand beyond our wheel-throwing classes. The second floor studio will provide resident and associate spaces for those who prefer to work independently. Hand-building classes will begin later this summer. We still have lots to do and inspections to pass but hope to open for classes July 7 or 8. Please check back for updates or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
