If you've always wanted to roll up your sleeves and have some fun working with clay, this community center has all the tools to make your dreams come true during a workshop with Tribeca Clayworks:
• $29 ($50 value) for a 2.5-hour introductory hand-building ceramics workshop for adults
• Students who want to keep their work can glaze and fire it for an additional $15
• Classes are held Sunday from noon to 2:30 p.m. and Tuesday from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
What to Expect
During this 2.5-hour workshop in a fully equipped ceramic studio (pottery wheels, kilns, clay extruder, slab roller, and lots of clay), you will be instructed by professional ceramic artists. On a Tuesday evening or Sunday afternoon, you will learn many of the hand-building skills that are needed to make all kinds of functional and sculptural works of art. At the end of the session there will be a demonstration on the pottery wheel, and if you like you can take a spin.
