Important Update: 92Y remains open
Does not include service & handling fees, if applicable.
Now that you have at least two semesters of Beginner/Intermediate Handbuilding and Wheel classes under your belt, you’re ready to move on to our more advanced classes.
Working with world-class teaching artists, you’ll explore your personal voice through clay and learn how to develop personal work as you build on your skillset with more advanced techniques. All levels cover glazes, surface decoration and the use of slips.
About the studios: With 25 electric potters’ wheels, a gas reduction kiln and three electric kilns, 92Y’s Ceramics Center is one of the best equipped in NYC. During the fall and spring semesters students have the opportunity to take classes using stoneware. In the summer, 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). Our firing charge is 5c 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 space is limited. Please register here.
All classes scheduled to occur onsite are subject to state and federal safety guidelines. In the event that some, or all, of the meetings of the course cannot happen in person at 92Y, classes will be held at the schedule time in a virtual format via a video conferencing platform. The classes will continue through hands-on, at home activities, lectures, presentations, and / or group discussions. No refunds will be issued should any portion of a course be held virtually.

Gustav Hamilton received a BFA from the University of Montana and his MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Prior to moving to New York City he was a Visiting Professor at Colorado State University. His sculptures and paintings exist as auto-fictitious objects where real life events merge with fictional narrative. In this space of total authorship family heirlooms have as much relevance as imagined encounters with Jerry Seinfeld.
