Come take one of our classes! 


Unfortunately most of our classes are still canceled or postponed due to Covid-19.  Preston will resume private lessons once butte county is downgraded from Purple to Orange Risk Level.

We offer a variety of classes for both beginning and more advanced students. When you are enrolled in a class at the Chico Ceramic Center, you are given access to the studio during our business hours for extra time to work on class projects. 


Call us for details and to reserve your spot. 


C.O.R.E. charter school students are welcome in all our classes

Getting Dirty with Angie

Beginning Level 

This class is every Thursday from 6pm to 9pm, and its ongoing, meaning you can start any week you choose.  Geared toward the clay newbie who wants to have fun, this delightful class will give you quick success and some finished pieces to take home. Angie’s enthusiasm will inspire you to love clay as much as she does!


You will need a bag of big red and big white clay and wear cloths you don't care about because we will be getting dirty!  If you cannot make it to a class, just make sure to call ahead and you can make up the missed class another week. 


This class is $150 for a 6 class session.
