It was so fun just letting your imagination go wild as you’re kneading this clay and wondering, what am I gonna create today? It is so beautiful to see someone’s heart and soul infused into these sculptures, bowls, and pots! Thank you for giving the community a place to work with clay and maybe find a new passion!

Help Us Grow

Thanks to initial seed funding, Clay Studio has built a sustainable operation that is growing, but will need “fortification from others,” if it is to continue expanding, says Lynda Weinman, the nonprofit’s seed investor.

The studio will undergo renovations this spring to further build out the property and facilities. Once completed, programming will include photography classes, printmaking, painting, drawing, and more. Clay Studio is aiming to raise $625,000 to pay for equipment and furnishings, with the goal of greatly expanding their classes and community offerings in late 2022.
