The Ceramics Studio on our L3 level offers some of the best facilities for pottery wheel and ceramics classes on the Upper West Side. As a part of the community center setting, we strive to offer an inviting work environment where ideas, creativity, and laughs are shared. Working among peers—whether at a beginner or more advanced level—enriches the class experience.

We have a full schedule of programs for adults and kids on weekdays and Sundays. Every season brings a host of fun new workshops as well as single session classes. t. Come by for a tour!


The JCC Ceramics Studio has four large worktables, a slab roller, nine pottery wheels, two electric kilns (fired to cone 6 oxidation, using a white stoneware clay body), and cone 6 studio glazes and decorative underglazes/slips. Other clay bodies are available for advanced students—selection will be at the discretion of the studio director and may change per term.
