Welcome to Clayspace

Clayspace is the premier, fully equipped ceramic studio and art gallery located in Columbus, Ohio. We offer classes and workshops instructed by experienced ceramic artists in a comfortable and supportive environment. It’s a community of people who share an interest in art and a love of clay. Students are encouraged to explore their creative potential, share ideas, and create personal works of art with clay.

Along with a full studio, Clayspace/Gallery 831 has a beautiful art gallery that has exhibited the works of students and both local and international artists. Each month a new artist is featured in the gallery. Stop in and see the amazing art before you spend some time in the studio creating your own art.

Registration for an 8 week class includes 8 weeks of instruction, materials, firing, open studio time during the session and a student gallery show at the end of the session. Evening classes meet from 6:30- 9:00 pm once a week for 8 weeks. Classes are small, ensuring students a high level of individual attention.
