BKLYN CLAY is a modern ceramics studio for potters, artists, production clayworkers and hobbyists, with the first community Gas Kiln in Brooklyn. We are located in the S.Slope/Greenwood Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn NY.
Classes We offer multi-level wheel and hand-building classes for adults and after-school and summer classes for kids. Classes are offered in 12 week semesters. Wheel classes focus solely on wheel throwing, Hand-building encompasses all hand-building methods and techniques and Mixed Discipline incorporates wheel throwing with hand building techniques.
Membership BKLYN CLAY membership provides each member a private shelf space and personal door codes allowing 24/7 access to open studio hours that provide clay-workers with generous and flexible time to work, practice skills and produce work in a fully outfitted studio space.
Firing Fees/Clay bodies are separate from classes and membership fees (5¢ per cubic inch). We offer a low fire (cone 04) red earthenware, two stonewares, a white and dark that work well for both throwing and hand-building as well and fire and oxidize well in the high fire (cone 10) gas kiln. Porcelain can also be purchased from us for use in the studio.
