About ClaySpace

As the Erie Art Museum’s ceramic arts facility, we offer pottery and sculpture classes for all ages and ability levels. We are unique to the Erie region because we also offer independent ceramic arts study and private ceramic arts studios with access to wheels, a slab roller, a color decal printer with ceramic toners, a clay mixer and pay-as-you-go firing fees. All our instructors are professional artists who love to teach.
