About Us

The Clay Studio inspires curiosity and discovery around the art and craft of clay, drawing together students, artists, and an engaged public into a welcoming community. Every day, in our classrooms, studios, galleries, and neighborhoods, we deepen the connection between people and clay with the highest quality programs and exhibitions. Founded in 1974, The Clay Studio continues in the belief that shared creativity, so fundamental to humanity, is a critical force for good.

Services Offered

Claymobile, our mobile community engagement program, brings a “pop-up” ceramics studio to schools, neighborhood organizations, and other social service agencies throughout the Philadelphia region. Our professional teaching artists provide arts education opportunities using the tactile medium of clay to nurture imagination, critical thinking, and persistence. We also offer studio classes in handbuilding, wheel-throwing, casting and glazing, for people of all ages, from beginner to advanced.
