Clay Studio

The Creamery Arts Center boasts one of the best-equipped clay studios on the Western Slope. The studio offers scheduled, ongoing pottery and clay sculpture classes, as well as open studio time for those that wish to work independently.

Clay Studio 2We offer people throughout the community the opportunity to work with clay in a well equipped and creative environment. The studio provides numerous potters wheels as well as hand tools, a slab roller and clay extruder.

We have a well stocked glaze room, with many unique glazes for participants to explore and develop slips and glazes for their finished work. The studio boasts multiple electric and a Raku kiln. This gives participants the opportunity to explore different firing temperatures and techniques.


The CAC Art Classroom is a well-lit workspace with many of the amenities necessary to teach artist workshops. With excellent lighting, five large tables and 30 chairs, it provides a pleasant space for group meetings, parties and functions, as well.

Thanks to the Hotchkiss Fine Art Association, we also have a demonstration mirror, which allows the audience to see exactly what an instructor is demonstrating. Multiple water supplies, ample workspace and beautiful display panels round out the ameinites.

Non-profit organizations may schedule the space, free of charge, during the regular hours of operation (or pay a reasonable fee for an after-hours attendant).

For-profit organizations may schedule the space for a nominal fee. All organizations and individuals must submit a Facilities Use Agreement and a refundable cleaning deposit.
