Every month a new 2 part ceramic class for ages 8-12! (some sessions require two sessions) Member $15, Non-Member $20.  Pre-registration required. From garden friends to monsters, from faces to custom ornaments, come down to the ceramic studio to explore and play with clay. In each first session, we will build and create using earthenware clay. The following week, kids return to the studio to finish their pieces by glazing (painting) them. We will reach out when the pieces have gone through their final firing in the kiln and ready for pickup. Class size limit 10. 

GRA now offer's a monthly Paint Your Own Pottery class. Down in the studio we have a variety of ceramics ready to be painted ranging from $5-$20! Spot reservation is $5 and includes glazes and firing.  At the class choose your pottery piece for a variety of pre-made pieces (cost of pottery item not included in reservation fee).  Register online at
