Welcome to Calapooia Clay!

A place to learn, create, work, and play with clay.

We offer classes in wheel throwing and hand building with clay, events, private parties for adults, and more. Open studio is available for those who have graduated one of our classes and/or have previous training in the clay arts. Membership, purchase of a punch card, or current class membership is required for use of Open Studio.

Calapooia Clay is a hobby/learning/creative/development/event/community studio. It is not a production studio.

Our studio is currently full. We are not accepting new members or issuing punch-cards to new users. The way in to the studio right now is through classes. Check out the options on the Classes and Events page. If you want to put your name on the waitlist for either punch-card usage or membership, please come into the studio. The waitlist is located at the front desk.

Registration for upcoming classes and events is available. Go to Classes/Events to register.

Open Studio times are available for Monthly Members, current Punch-card holders and current class participants. The limit per session is fifteen. Registration is required.
