Take a Class


Classes at District Clay are informal with a maximum of 14 students per class. Students progress at their own speed under their teacher's direction as they explore increasingly complex forms and glaze options. Your class fee includes instruction, use of tools, clay, glazes and bisque & glaze firing.  All you need to bring to class is a towel!  District Clay is unique in that it allows students to sit on any other class* as well as to take advantage of our open studio time on Sundays from 12:30 to 3 pm at no charge.  We recognize that one of the keys to success in the ceramic arts is practice! and so we try and make the studio as available as possible to our students.  If you have any questions, click here to send an email.


District Clay offers a variety of gift certificates for those who wish to give the gift of clay to a friend or loved one.   If you would like individual instruction or customized classes,  we can sometimes arrange those with our instructors.  Please send a email explaining what you are looking for and we will get back to you.


Unless otherwise noted, enrollment in classes is rolling, meaning that classes generally begin within a week of a student's registration. Students will receive a confirming email specifying the date their class begins - please do not start your class until you have been contacted by District Clay - this includes Tuesday Try It! classes, which are only held when enough students have enrolled for a particular class.  Students who know they will be traveling during their ten week class session can get their class sessions extended.  This can be done by listing the dates they will not be in town in the "notes" column when they check-out.  Once classes have begun, students can make up any other absences by sitting in on other classes or going to Open Studio.


 Advanced students may apply for independent study as part of District Clay's thriving Artist in Residence program.  Independent study allows the artist 24 hour access to the studio and increased shelf space for work.   Students pay $145/month plus the cost of clay.  There may be extra firing fees for larger glazed pieces or large amounts of work.  Students interested in this program should send a message outlining their experience and interests.


District Clay also accepts a limited number of Work/Study students who defray the cost of their classwork by working in the studio for an equivalent number of hours per week.  We currently have a pug mill work/study position available.  For more information, click here.   Senior citizens and full time students are eligible for a 10 percent discount.  This discount may not be combined with other discounts.  For a senior discount, type:  "senior" in the coupon field.  For full time student discount, type "student" in the coupon field
