Gallery is open!

Our gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm or by appointment. We limit to 6 customers at a time in the gallery. If you’d like to make an appointment please call us at (828) 253-2424. If you come to the gallery, we invite you to come inside where you’ll see self-serve hand sanitizer that we ask you use before touching any pottery. If you arrive and the door is locked, just call the number listed on the door to see if we’re at capacity or to be let in.

The Village Potters Clay Center is a vibrant creative community dedicated to the exploration of clay.

We offer classes for all levels in wheel, hand building, sculpture, surface design, jewelry making, raku and saggar firings, and more. We host both demonstrations and hands-on workshop experiences.

Our center includes a gallery selling fine ceramic art and functional work representing our six residents potters: Judi Harwood, Christine Henry, Julia Mann, Katie Messersmith, Lori Theriault, and Sarah Wells Rolland. Our gallery has four showrooms and is open seven days a week.
