Coronavirus/Schedule Update:

The health and well being of our staff, customers and community are of utmost importance.  For this reason, The ClayGround will be closed for the time being until further direction is given by the Governor, and all classes and special events scheduled are suspended.  We hope the coronavirus will be contained in as short a period as possible and we will be able to reopen and resume classes and special events in the near future.  If you are currently scheduled into a session during the period that we are closed, please reschedule either on line, by email or give us a call.   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.  As soon as we know when we can reopen we will let you know here and on our various social media sites. We hope by doing our part to try and contain the spread of the virus, we will see everyone very soon – healthy and ready to create pottery, glass fusion, mosaics and wonderful memories!
