  The Potter's Guild of Caid  

Places to Play!


While both Calafia and Altavia have branches of the Potter’s Guild and host open studios, there are lots of places throughout CAID that offer different areas of ceramic arts.  Here is a short list I compiled of places that I came across, broken down by what services they had.




These places sell the “Paint Your Own” wares for a fee.  Usually, they sell the low-fire glazes along with a multitude of things to paint, and they will fire your piece.

Each studio has different equipment, focuses, and physical space.  Prices change per person, space and knowledge of clay work.  Most offer classes in one form or the other, as well as discounts depending on how many people are coming.  The comments below each one were done quickly in some instances for my own records.  Call to verify information and what is available.
