MIY Ceramics is an open pottery studio. We’re an open playground and learning center studio for people that want to make pottery without setting up an expensive home studio. We are a unique playground for clay enthusiasts, recreational potters and ceramic artists who come to our studio to make pottery or to take pottery classes. Skilled potters and people that took our pottery classes can access use our open ceramics art studio facilities to make pottery under flexible access plans. If want to unwind, meet other people that have “clay in common” and be inspired by an endless flow of artistic ideas, join this group. Our communal setting will help you learn new skills and enhance existing ones as you make pottery, see other potters work and exchange experiences and ideas with them. We provide all you need: classes, studio space, glazes, wheels, tools, clay, kiln firings, expertise and support. You provide the talent!
