Potters and Clay Artists are welcome to join the Lander Art Center Clay Studio.
We have 5 potters’ wheels, a slab roller, coil extruder, a pug mill, throwing and sculpting tools, and lots of table space. We offer electric firing for low/mid fire range. We sell mid-fire clay from Laguna in 25 lb bags. We also carry a range of cone 06/6 glazes and several underglazes. We offer many options for clay artists to come and create, see our options below. Questions or suggestions? Contact our education coordinator, Chrissy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (307)-332-5772

A facilitator will be available to answer all questions, and all firing will be taken care of by LAC staff (unless of pre-arranged special circumstances/approval). Open studio will be during selected times only. See our open studio schedule for more information.
