Pottery Classes NYC. Updated 2019
Pottery classes in NYC where you can visit a real ceramic studio, make your own pottery and learn how to make pottery. After my research I came up with the following ceramic studios in New York.
This is a cool pottery studio in Brooklyn that offers Weekly Classes, Try Night and Private Lessons. Classes are for all skill levels and your can learn pottery wheel-throwing, hand-building and mold-making slip casting. Also they have Memberships for those who want to go further and start working on their own pottery projects.
This pottery place is located inside a building in Manhattan. Here you can find a One Day Trial Course to make your own pottery. They also have hand-building and wheel classes focused on Japanese techniques. These courses are 4 - 6 weeks long.
