Playing with clay is fun for everyone – no matter your age or background. It provides not only a creative outlet, but an outlet for the general stresses of life and helps with finding some peace and mental balance. It grounds you, both in a physical sense, but also emotionally, and brings immense joy.

Ideal for people who wish to explore their creativity in a less formal manner. The sessions are not tutored but there are usually plenty of people around who can offer tips and guidance if needed. If you decide you want to learn more, it is best to enroll in a class.

$14 per 3 hour session plus clay for a non-members
