Stone, Sculpture & Mosaics Classes

Create decorations for your home or garden, like a realistic animal statue or a wind chime made from recycled bottles. Learn the basics of design and the technical fundamentals behind these age-old crafts. Together, these three mediums offer a wealth of possibilities.

Clay Studio

Originally built by Cherokee County as a cooperative cannery that served the community for many years, the Clay Studio includes plenty of workstations for wheel and handbuilding classes, along with a dry box and electric kilns. Gas, wood, and raku kilns are outside a few yards away. The studio’s rustic front porch overlooks a small flower garden and is a great place to take a quick break. Our Clay Studio is on Studio Row, alongside the Enameling, Woodcarving, and D.X. Ross Jewelry & Metals Studios.

Sienna Shute

Sienna grew up digging clay and air-drying small sculptures on the lake shores of Seven Lakes, North Carolina where she lived with her family until pursuing a degree at UNC Chapel Hill. After college she came to the Folk School as a clay student and, like many others, was pulled right in! In the years to follow she came back as both a Work Study and a Host. Sienna then found her way to Haywood Community College’s Professional Crafts Program where she took a deep dive into pottery and received a degree in Clay. Since graduation, Sienna has returned to the area and is working as a studio potter with a focus on functional tableware.
