The Potters' Studio is a one-of-a-kind ceramics center in Berkeley, California. Helping artists reach their full potential is an important goal, and as part of our program we provide hard-to-find training in studio skills that are important to serious artists, such as how to fire electric and gas kilns and how to mix glazes. Our artists sell their work in our gallery and all over the San Francisco Bay Area.

We offer memberships with 24/7 access, classes, regular high-quality weekly firings, a gallery, and much more. It's a great place to learn, and if you're a more experienced ceramics artist looking for a place to just do your own thing, this is the place!
