About the Studios

Come take a tour! Just call 212.415.5565. When you come by, you’ll find studios equipped with 25 electric potters' wheels, a gas reduction kiln and three electric kilns. During the fall and spring terms you’ll have the opportunity to take classes using stoneware, and in the summer months porcelain is the material of choice. All work is glaze-fired to cone 10. Clay is included in the cost of tuition (unless you use bagged clay, which may be purchased for $20 per 25-pound bag). Firing charge is five cents per cubic inch for two firings for all work made in classes and workshops. Students must supply their own tools, which may be purchased from 92Y. Open studio time is available to all students currently enrolled in one of our classes. A $4/hr. fee applies.
