Clay Studio

The Clay Studio is currently closed and will reopen in the summer of 2017 in our new education facility at 405 Pine St. 

The BCA Clay Studio is a fully equipped ceramics studio offering classes for the novice to the expert. Our studio has 14 pottery wheels, three kilns, a slab roller, extruder and a wide variety of hand tools to enhance your project design. There are also more than 100 glaze combinations available to complete your ceramic work. We offer open studio hours for those who choose to pursue clay through our many classes. Our studio use is also available for monthly rental for those that wish to explore their art at their leisure. Children's classes and family activities are available year round.
