About & Location
Clay Club is a place to let yourself be creative. And, if you’re at all shy about that, the club is also a place where there are many opportunities to learn the various clay building techniques, which will enable you to BE creative.
Do you enjoy using your hands to create works of art? Come in for a visit. The Clay Club is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Friday and Saturday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday at Thursday; and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. The studio is located at the Beardsley Rec Center, 12755 Beardsley Road.
Joining Clay Club involves completing a Clay Club membership application and then taking a Beginning Hand-building Class.
Here are the specifics: Stop into the Clay Club Studio and obtain an application form. Applications are available at the monitor’s desk (located just inside the front door).
Before you can work in the Clay Club Studio, taking a Beginning Hand-building Class is a requirement. When your application is completed and turned in, you will be contacted by a Beginning Hand-building teacher who will give you information on the days and times of upcoming classes. Once you complete the Beginning Hand-building Class, you will receive orientation and monitor training. Then you’re official.
The cost of the class is $125 and includes the class fee, clay for your projects, firing and glazing fees and your dues for the year.
If you are already an experienced potter, you may opt to be tested for your skill level rather than taking Beginning Hand-building Class. Upon approval, you will then receive orientation and monitor training.
