Open Clay Studio

Now in clay-room-Kathleenits twelfth year of operation, the Hoffman Center Clay Studio is the only clay studio on the North Oregon Coast to offer both instruction in ceramic techniques and open studio hours.

Classes in wheel throwing, hand-building and related techniques are offered monthly. Calendar and sign-up information is available on the Hoffman Center Blog at

Open Studio is offered three times a week for anyone 18 years and older to come work on clay projects. Hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Artists can purchase clay for wheel or hand-building, have their works bisque fired in the studio’s kiln, and then glaze works before final firing.

All experience levels are welcome and a Volunteer Studio Host is available to answer questions and offer tips during Open Studio.

Studio fees are $2 per hour, which include glazing and firing up to the finished product. Clay is $1.50 per pound.
