About Muddy Waters Studio 

Muddy Waters is a small community studio that has all the things you might need to create your clay masterpieces in a creative and friendly atmosphere. We offer children, teen, and adult classes, individual and group private lessons, as well as a generous open studio rental program. 

Pottery class sizes are small with every student receiving individualized attention. Our instructors build the curriculum around each student's personal interests and goals. Sign up for one of our scheduled classes or if you have 3 or more friends or family who are interested in learning about clay, we offer private group lessons at a discount. 

Open Studio Rental is available for more experienced artists looking for somewhere to work and renters have complete studio access whenever classes are not scheduled.   We have a selection of midfire, durable glazes that will be fired in our electric kiln. 

Muddy Waters Studio can meet your needs whether you like working on the wheel, hand building, tile making, extrusion, altering slabs, sculpting, or any combination of pottery techniques! All skill levels welcome: from beginner to experienced and everywhere in between.  Our relaxed environment is focused on having fun while building your skills.
