In the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Throw Clay LA is a space to learn, inspire and create the art and craft of pottery. Our pottery studio offers One-Time Classes, 6-Week Pottery Courses, Private Team Events, and memberships for those with experience. We also have gift cards available for a creative and memorable present. Our six-week courses come with time to practice what you are learning in the pottery studio.

From the novice looking to throw their first pot, to the experienced hobbyist hoping to create a complete set of dinnerware, and on to the advanced potter intending to open their first Etsy shop, Throw Clay LA pottery studio exists to encourage the creative spirit.


Founded by potter John Prescott, our vision is to offer a vibrant and welcoming neighborhood studio - a creative way to get out and get involved with friends, neighbors and co-workers. Pottery is a studio art form in which you see immediate results. Beginners successfully craft their own dish-ware, cactus planters, or handmade gifts. Advanced potters demonstrate and share further skills while exploring artistic possibilities with their monthly membership.

Our instructors and studio mentors have a wide variety of backgrounds. Through Handbuilding and the Potter's Wheel, they help you explore the art and find your artistic style. Read more...
