Another new year is upon us and so is your chance to venture out from your cozy winter abode to indulge your creative side with a little extra time in the studios. With an array of familiar names on the teaching roster, NCC’s teaching artists are ready to stir up some extra excitement with clay for the start of your new year. Be sure to take a close look at the Special Topics classes for some unique opportunities with visiting artists and our Special Topics Workshops section for a deeper look at select clay techniques. Bring your fresh ideas and hunger for investigation to enliven your experience in the classroom.
We continue to offer students more open studio time than many other clay studios in the Twin Cities, leaving plenty of time to digest demonstrations and practice your craft independently. Adult students generally have access to our studios between 9 am and 9 pm Wednesday through Sunday, 4:30 to 9 pm on Mondays, and 9 am to midnight on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (subject to other NCC events and programming). Browse our open studio schedule online to check the most up-to-date listing of available studios.
Looking to find a quick clay fix this winter? Try a Project Workshop and get out of the house to see what all the buzz is about. From our ever-popular Clay for Couples and Crafterdark classes, to three sections of our 16th Annual Valentine’s Day Workshops, the options are numerous.
Our introductory classes are perfect for first-time students with a more flexible six-week schedule. We’re proud to present a diverse cast of expert teaching artists to help guide your experience.
