“I want to add to the many thank you notes you must have received over the years. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 15 years and I am so grateful to have finally found your studio. Thank you for all the labor of love you have put into creating and maintaining this space. ” – Karlyn K.
During our 8 weeks ceramic classes our accomplished artist/instructors will demonstrate and assist you with wheel throwing, hand building, tile making and sculpting techniques as well as surface decoration and glazing. Our philosophy is to nurture individual expression: We do not give “cookie-cutter” assignments but rather encourage students to let their instructor know what they would like to achieve to develop their own original ideas and vision. Classes are built around group demonstrations followed by individualized help. Students also receive unlimited open studio access 7 days/week.
Choplet ceramic studio also offers One Day Pottery Trial and BYOB Wheel Throwing Fridays for individuals who would like hands on introduction to working with clay on the potter’s wheel. Mold making and Raku firing workshops are offered every 2-3 months. Please refer to the workshop schedule to find out when the next ones are scheduled. As a ceramic art and craft educational resource for the New York Community, Choplet studio also offers kids afterschool program, children’s pottery classes, clay camp and family ceramic classes.
Custom classes such as birthdays, Bachelorette parties and corporate event can be organized with a minimum of 5 participants. Private pottery lessons from 1 to 4 participants can be booked to focus on your specific needs.
