Join us in our newly renovated Clay Studio where guests come and create in ceramic clay! This is a collaborative "get together" and not an instructional class. Simply come in and get your hands in clay whether it be small ceramic jewelry, sculpture, hand building or even throwing on the wheel. The choice is yours. Hattie Weselyk Studio now has a fully equipped Clay Studio enough to seat 13.
We have four potters wheels, new large slab roller, clay sink and a ceramic kiln. Hattie's wish is to offer a place for guests to relax and enjoy creating, while learning from one another. All ages and levels welcome! Children ages 8 + must be accompanied by an adult.

Clay Studio Donation: We welcome any contribution or monetary donation to the ceramic studio. All donations will go towards the purchase of new tools, equipment and glazes for all to enjoy. Soon we hope to purchase a slab roller for the studio. You may make your donation in the dropbox on day you visit the studio. Thank you so very much.
Pickup: You may pop in during any scheduled Clay Day to pick up your work. No need to enroll in the class. Please bring a small cardboard box to transport your finished pieces.
A note about ceramic firing:
The first time you visit you will create your work in the 'greenware' clay stage. The clay will need sometimes up to 10 days to fully dry before firing. If placed in kiln too soon it risks breaking. The next time you come in you will add a glaze to your work should you choose in which case it will go through its final "glaze fire". Its often a two class process. Many guests come in and glaze their pieces then start into their next clay piece.
