NCC’s education programs are for clay enthusiasts of all ages and interests. We provide access to state-of-the-art facilities and a diverse and talented mix of teaching artists. These classes — for adults who have never touched clay, for skilled artisans, or for families looking for a weekend adventure — introduce dozens of interesting topics and serve a variety of commitment levels: from one day to 10 weeks and from hands-on instruction to gallery presentations.
NCC now offers more options for beginning students, meaning smaller class sizes and more hands-on instruction for you! Adult students enjoy open access to our studios from 9 am - 9 pm, 5 days each week (and from 9am - midnight on Thursdays), and additional hours on weekends.
For classes and workshops marked "sold", please call to be added to the waiting list.
Registration for winter classes and workshops begins on November 25.
Classes will cover the fundamental techniques of throwing basic forms on the potter's wheel and creating surface decoration using glazes, slips, and applied elements, with varied demonstrations and projects for advanced students. Learn More
