For The Love of Clay

Bringing Joy Through Pottery

Our education-focused studio was founded in 2014 by a woman with a dream - to bring the art-loving community of SF together through pottery.

Everyday 10am - 9pm

Open Studio Hours: M-F 10am - 6pm


Every 6-week class meets for 2.5 hours of instructor-led class time each week. You will meet for 6 weeks at your chosen time, but have full access to the studio during open-studio hours to practice and create (10am-6pm)

You'll be able to make at least 2 items during each class, and many more if you get the hang of it! Depending on the class you might make different things - cups, vases, bowls, planters, dishes, and so much more!

Memberships renew every month and will give you full access to the studio, plus special perks like designated wheels & tables, extended open-studio hours, special discounts & parties, and more!

CBTB offers classes suitable for ALL skill levels. If you have never touched clay, or it's been so long you'd like to have a full refresh, consider one of our INTRO CLASSES that will walk you through every step of the process. These are 6-week or 1-time lessons you can choose to fit your schedule! If you have more background in creating on the wheel or by hand, give one of our INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED classes a shot to push your skill level further and explore more ways to clay. You could also sign up for our MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP option and pursue ceramics on your own schedule, 7-days a week!
