Clay is Community at Rosewood Pottery Studio!

Our studio is the only community pottery studio serving the adult
population of the Richmond area.

We offer numerous classes throughout the year in wheel-throwing and
hand-building, and our focus on small class size facilitates individual
instruction and special in-class requests. We also provide the opportunity
for practice outside of class during more than 40 hours per week of open

Resident artists, independent study students and interns round out our
