Community Clay Studio
This ceramics studio is unmatched in our community, with nine potter's wheels, three kilns, 1,500 square feet of well-equipped studio space, and an abundance of natural light. Our programs and instructors foster self-expression and inspire the artistic sensibilities of participants of all ages. Pottery and other clay classes are offered for adults, teens and children year-round, and a clay arts camp is held for children every summer. Inclusion assistance inquiries welcome. Please call 968-2798 for more information. The Studio is attached to the Parks & Recreation Administrative Offices (200 Plant Road), behind Community Center Park (120 S. Estes Drive)
Fall Session B classes begin the week of October 30 and registration for these is now open. Session B ends the first week of 2018 with breaks for Thanksgiving week and the winter holidays.
Inclement Weather Policy: The Community Clay Studio
follows the Town of Chapel Hill’s schedule and announcements rather than
those of the Chapel Hill – Carrboro City School system. Studio
classes, camps and open studios will only be cancelled if the Town of
Chapel Hill cancels its programming and operations (which are announced
through local television and radio stations, and at www.townofchapelhill.org).
Production Policy: The Community Clay Studio fires clay pieces created at the Studio during its classes and open studios, at the size and specifications recommended by Studio instructors. Pieces developed outside of the Studio premises and instructor recommendations will not be fired. Participants may be asked to limit the quantity or size of their work if they make unusually large pieces, if they make an unusually large amount of work, and/or if the kilns are running at maximum capacity.
