Ryan Pearce Pottery Scholarship

This Year’s scholarship will be in two parts Graduate and Educator

In honor of a dear friend Ryan Pearce we are delighted to offer the following two programs for 2019:

Educator - To educators or volunteers associated with any non-profit school or community project, we will offer one month of free classes. Whether you work with children or adults, and are thinking about introducing pottery to your program, we will teach you some basic skills or help you improve the skills you already have. We will host a new guest potter each month. To apply, please email contact information and details about your school or project to info@thelondonclayworks.com. Classes take place on Saturdays 9:30-11:30

Our graduate space has been filled for 2019 please get in touch next year for our 2020 placement.
- We would like to invite a recent ceramics graduate to join us in the studio for a free three-month membership. You must have graduated in the last two years with a focus on ceramics and either live in Louisiana or have attended a college or university here. Please email info@thelondonclayworks.com with your contact information and a brief description of your work, and we’ll reply with details of how to apply.


Classes run once a week for four weeks, giving students time to learn the entire process of creating a ceramic piece. Class sizes are small to allow for plenty of individual attention. Class fees include glazing, firing and use of all the tools and facilities.



Open studio membership allows access to the studio and use of all equipment and facilities for the part time potter or hobbyist who wants flexibility and community while practicing their craft. Membership from $190 per month includes the cost of firing*, glazing, and tools — all you need to buy is clay!

*firing included up to a reasonable limit


Friday Night Drop in

If you can’t commit to a regular class then our Friday night drop in class is for you! You pay only for the classes you attend and you don’t need to book in advance. We will store your work for 3 weeks for you to come and work on it again. Students who haven’t glazed at our studio before can attend a glazing demo on the 4th class of the month



We can tailor a party or group booking to suit your needs. We offer birthday, bachelorette and group parties as well as corporate team building and away days.

We also offer private tuition for anyone wanting individual attention
