 Clay Room @ CCC is an exciting new creative space for pottery - check out the website

Opened in February 2018, The Clay Room offers classes and workshops for beginners to experienced potters - for adults, secondary and primary aged students.  Meet our highly experienced craftspeople who offer expert tuition in hand building and wheel throwing. Classes include all equipment and kiln firing.

pottery classes involve using the potter's wheel to make objects. Learn how to properly use a potter's wheel, the correct amount of water to use to keep the clay pliable and how to keep the wheel turning at a steady rate.

 pottery classes allow you to make everything from sculpture, including figurative and abstract forms to functional objects like bowls, cups, platters and tiles, without the use of a potter's wheel.
