August Class Session Now Full

The next round of classes will start in mid-October. Registration will be in late September.

If you have questions about registration, please DO NOT call the studio. You will get a much faster response if you email alexclayeducation@gmail.com.

Current students have the opportunity to pay for the next session of their class before open enrollment. 

The number of spaces in our classes is limited, and our classes are typically full. Demand has been extremely high. This new policy means that we may have few or no class spaces with open registration for a given session.

Sorry, we  do not have a waitlist for new students.

Looking for One-Day Classes?

We are not currently offering our three-hour Try-It classes.

Classes are informal and kept small (8 students max) to allow instructors to provide each student with individual attention as needed.  Classes are 3 hours long, and extra studio time is included for all classes during open studio hours at no extra charge. 

 

Open studio is held on Tuesdays from 4-10pm and Saturdays from 12-8pm.  Classes are open to students age 15 and up or to students 12 and up if a parent is also taking the class.  

Classes fill up quickly. It is important for you to secure a space if you plan on joining a class.

 

Classes with fewer than four students may be cancelled. If a class is cancelled, students would be able to join another class or could receive a full refund.

 

Inclement Weather Policy

Unless otherwise announced on our home page all classes will occur as scheduled.  We will place any cancelation notices on our Facebook page and home page and will make every effort to notify students via email.

 

Please e-mail alexclayeducation@gmail.com for more information.
