A clay studio rooted in community and exploration in San Francisco. WOC artist founded and operated.
Wheelhouse Clay Studio is a collective of artists bounded by their knowledge and passion for ceramics. With years of experience, we want to share our skills to connect with the community and foster creativity in a safe space through clay, art, and dialogue.
Our community studio holds memberships, classes and workshops to help you get started on your clay journey or learn new skills and techniques to elevate your craft. We want to help you tell your visual story. We nurture true understanding of quality and vulnerable exploration to test clay's limits with respect. We hope that as you dive deeper into the craft, you learn new things about yourself and make friends along the way.
Let's create together!

Current Membership Capacity: Full w/ Waitlist
In order to become a member, it is required for you to have taken a 6-week course at Wheelhouse at minimum and be invited regardless of your skill and experience level-- no exceptions to keep it fair. =)
This way, you will be familiar with our studio etiquette, functions and ways of sustaining our safe space. Members are expected to work fully independently and autonomously with respect and consideration of others and our shared resources.
Please be advised that our studio is NOT for production pottery. Our principles emphasize education, elevation of techniques, skills and honing artistic voices. We want members who want to join with the intention to learn not just about clay, but about each other and the community that makes our studio operate with effort, thoughtfulness and reciprocity.
We want to make sure we are the studio for you and vice versa, because when you grow, we grow with you in ways more than the craft. Wheelhouse Clay is not just a place of creativity and making, but also of vulnerability and unlearning.
We do not offer any firing and clay services, temporary membership nor studio passes at this time.
