Ceramic Classes at NCC

As we begin to emerge from a time of prolonged and challenging adjustments, we push forward with a practice that has always been a teacher of resiliency—ceramics.

As the weather warms and our surroundings come back to life, spring back into your favorite practice or swing with something new altogether in the studios at Northern Clay Center. A talented, well-rounded cast of new and returning teaching artists are ready to guide the next steps in your clay experience with a wide variety of foundational offerings, beginner and intermediate classes, and a number of Special Topics classes and workshops.
