We are reopening the beloved pottery program that was once run by the City of Virginia Beach!
Our fully equipped pottery studio will allow you to explore your creativity with this lovely hands-on medium. Skilled instructors will take students of any ability to the next level.
Clay is a wonderful medium that marries hands-on sculpture with color and painting. Learn how to throw clay on the wheel and how to hand-build. Classes are offered for every skill level.
See the Class Schedule here.
Experienced potters are invited to use our equipment and kilns for independent projects. Open studio time can be purchased as a "class," but truly, you are on your own!
Use the class registration button to purchase a full package or half-package with clay, glazing and firing included.
Everyone who uses the pottery studio must read and verify that they understand and agree to abide by the pottery policies and procedures. The Handbook is available below. Please download the handbook. The final page should be signed and submitted when you attend a class or open studio.
We have a wide array of equipment and tools and fire in mid-range (cone 5/6).

Why we love the Pottery Studio...
“I have been a pottery student for about 20 years. I have made some wonderful friends and gained a world of knowledge about more than just clay. This is a fabulously versatile and creative outlet for coping with the stresses and losses that life offers. We have each other and our passion for creating from clay.” Barbara Bloom
