Creative Pottery Class

Craft whatever you want from a pound of clay in this Vallejo class.

3 hours Class size 4 to 6     label $30

What can you do with a pound of clay? A lot actually! This pottery class provides an opportunity to escape your hectic life to be immersed in a creative and engaging activity. It's a great chance to get your hands dirty as you awaken your mind to new ideas and enjoy some art therapy.

This is self-directed studio time where we provide suggested projects and instructions for you to follow, or use this time creatively to make something you've been dreaming about. An instructor will be on hand to help guide you and give you tips on how to complete your project should you need it. We  also encourage students to let their hands roam without any set goal in mind.

Pottery making with us is open to all skill levels. The session lasts 3 hours, and you can show up whenever it suits you during our class hours.

We will provide pottery tools for you to use, including molds, stamps, texture mats, tools, and more. Experiment with texture, sink your hands into the cooling clay, and refresh your mind. Want your clay creation glazed and fired? No problem. Leave your project with us and it will be glazed and fired for you, ready to pick up in a couple of weeks.

Class open to people 12 years and up. 
Proof of vaccination is required.

What you'll get

Your teacher

Vallejo Clay Workshop is located in the pottery studio of Whitney Smith in beautiful downtown Vallejo. Whitney has been a full-time potter for over 20 years, and started her studio in Oakland, California before moving to Vallejo with her husband and cat in 2018. She opened her new studio on Marin street in March of that year.

Starting a workshop to teach students was not part of the original plan when Whitney moved to Vallejo. But so many locals asked for an opportunity to get their hands in clay that Vallejo Clay Workshop insisted in being born.

The studio is an inspirational space where groups of students can gather and create work. The studio is currently equipped with work tables, a slab roller, kilns, and all the tools needed to make functional or sculptural work.

Because space is limited, classes and workshops are small and individual attention to students is key. We will continue to add new classes, be sure to sign up for our email list so you can be the first to know!
