 Working with Clay

Turning a pot

The Art Studio offers lots of great activities with clay! We have great clay working facilities with 5 throwing wheels and a large slab roller.

Projects can be functional like a dish or basket, or full of abstract artistic beauty. Guest working with clay have the pleasure of working with clay artist Lynn Loftus. With over 40 years of experience, Lynn can help you realize your clay dreams. Please call for reservations in all wet clay activities. 2 weeks project time, please ask if your visit may be shorter.
