We love that scene in Ghost too…

but it’s not really like that…. at least not usually.

We’re not afraid of trying something new, and you shouldn’t be either. When you come to a Viva Clayworks you will be sitting at the wheel within the very first hour of your very first class. The only way to learn this art, as with many things, is to get your hands dirty and practice. Our teachers are knowledgeable and our classes are small (12 MAX) to make sure we’re available to support you in your learning experience. By the end of your 6 week session, it’s likely that you’ll have a plethora of pieces to show for your efforts.

What are you waiting for? Check out our list of classes for adults and children. We look forward to sharing our joy for clay with you.
