Imagine using your hands to create a piece of art that is both functional and beautiful. It is a magnificent feeling to be able to start with a piece of clay and use your imagination and skill to give it shape, meaning and artistic quality.

The ceramic arts programs offered at Shadbolt allow all ages from preschoolers, children, teens to adults, and skill levels to experience creating ceramic artwork with the guidance of seasoned and highly acclaimed professionals.
