a pottery studio for children.



When you are ready, we'll be here. We've made some changes to our schedules, structure, and process. Hope to see you soon!

Clay is a wonderful, and endlessly versatile medium. It is a great way to introduce art to your curious child, or help your budding artist expand his or her creativity. At our kids pottery studio in Chicago, we teach kids how to make ceramic pieces from wet clay using their best tools - their hands. Handbuilding students use molds, stamps, cookie cutters and underglazes to transform clay into fun and unique ceramic pieces. Wheelthrowing students are taught to use the potters wheel to make bowls, cups and more. We are not a 'Paint your own Pottery' studio. We are a 'Make your own Pottery' studio.

Most of our activities are on hold at the moment due to Covid 19. We hope to resume our services in full soon. Until then, here is what we are able to offer.
