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!  Come, discover the ancient art of the pottery wheel and start a lifelong exploration of what the New York Times calls the hottest craft today (White Hot, in fact!). 


District Clay is unique in that it allows students to sit on any other class* as well as offering 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.  We want you to SEIZE THE CLAY!


District Clay offers a variety of gift certificates for those who wish to give the gift of clay to a friend or loved one.   Also, if you are interested in individual instruction or special group or other customized classes, we can often arrange those with our instructors.  Please send us an email explaining what you are looking for.


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 miss a class and not be able to make it up during that week can get their class sessions extended.  This is done by listing the weeks they will be absent 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.   Resident Artists pay $145/month plus the cost of clay.  There may be extra firing fees for larger glazed pieces or large amounts of work.  If you are interested in this program please send an email outlining your experience and interests. 


District Clay also offers a 10% discount for seniors and full time students (college or graduate school).  For seniors, type "senior" in the coupon field.  For the student discount, type "student" in the coupon field.
