The Ceramics Studio on L3 offers some of the best facilities for pottery wheel and ceramics classes on the Upper West Side in NYC. As a part of the community center setting, we strive to offer an inviting work environment where ideas, creativity and laughs are shared. Working amongst peers — whether at a beginner or more advanced level — enriches the class experience.
We have a full schedule of adult and kids clay programs throughout the week and on Sundays. Every season will bring a host of fun new workshops in ceramics as well as single session Trial Classes to come and sample what we're all about. Send me an email or come by for a tour!
Call us to schedule children or adult birthday parties, we'll work with you to create a memorable occasion!
