Due to unforeseen delays with the Village of Tequesta, the reopening date of our beloved 3D studio remains uncertain. However, we are excited to share that in January 2024, we will be launching a satellite ceramic studio at our 385 location. While this temporary space may be more intimate, it will continue to host our cherished ceramic and sculpture classes. Please be mindful that availability in this satellite studio will be limited, so early registration is strongly encouraged.

Also, keep an eye out for some of the alternative sculpture and 3D printing classes and workshops taught by your favorite ceramic instructors. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.
