Discover the Clay Studio, a cherished hub where creativity thrives and connections flourish. Originally established as a cooperative cannery by Cherokee County, our studio invites you to join us in supporting our mission of empowering artists and fostering a sense of belonging. Step into our spacious facility, equipped with workstations for both wheel and handbuilding classes, providing the perfect space for artists of all levels to unleash their imagination and bring their artistic visions to life. With modern electric kilns, convenient dry boxes, and nearby gas, wood, and raku kilns, we offer a diverse range of tools and techniques to inspire endless possibilities.

As part of Studio Row, alongside the Enameling, Woodcarving, and D.X. Ross Jewelry & Metals Studios, we foster a vibrant community that celebrates the richness of artistic diversity and craftsmanship. Your support as a donor to the Clay Studio will help us maintain our facilities, provide year-round classes, and expand our outreach programs, ensuring that the transformative power of clay remains accessible to all who seek to ignite their creativity and forge meaningful connections. Together, let’s build a brighter future for the arts and create a space where artistic expression thrives.
