My husband and I took a few classes using the pottery wheel before all the damage from the flooding last July - while under previous management! We were planning on going to do the glazing - but the flood happened and we were not sure if and when it would re -open. We finally got back this weekend to learn our 4 pots were not there anymore - something happened to pots A through M between the old owner not re-opening and the new owner cleaning things up and re-opening the shop. I was not happy, but the pots were gone... After talking to the new owner Michael, I am sure the shop will be better than before in many ways! He cares about customer satisfaction and that everyone has a good experience (pot or no pot - lol). The dog is wonderful and we will be coming back for more classes, buy from local artists and pet the dog. Thank you Michael and Bree!
I just took a class on using the clay wheel. The verdict is now out. I loved it! The owner and staff are extremely nice and the instructor was excellent. I cannot wait to glacé and then see my finished piece. I signed up for two classes and I am sooo glad I did. I love I will have two pieces when done. Thank you staff for being so nice
My husband and I have taken both a pottery class and a fused glass class. We had an absolute blast!! Everyone there welcomes you with a smile and open arms. Their love for what they do and for the art is contagious. Whether you are interested in taking a class or simply looking for a unique hand made gift for someone special, visiting the Clayground is a must!
