Ithaca’s community pottery studio.

The Clay School has paused programming until it is safe to run the studio at full capacity. We have limited memberships at this time. Please contact us via email to be added to a wait list. studio@clayschoolithaca.com or clayschoolithaca@gmail.com

For private lessons, please contact the teachers directly. You will find them listed on the lessons section in the pull down menu.

Support the studio and our ongoing expenses through this difficult time.  Use the DONATE button to select an amount that feels right for you. We’ll appreciate whatever you can offer and we’ll be here waiting for you when this passes.


The Clay School is committed to providing a vibrant, creative space for community members to work with clay, and learn alongside fellow creatives, from local professional and emerging potters. Our goal is to foster a sense of community among students of all ages and enrich their continuing education through shared experiences around making art.
