  • What clients say

James and Sam after a successful session at Clay Date PDX
  • Amelia is an amazing teacher! She was super helpful and accommodating and helped us create whatever we could think of! She even was able to repair some of the mistakes we made to ensure our pieces would be perfect.

  • I was worried I would embarrass myself in front of my date, but when we sat down with Amelia she had both of us laughing at how little I knew about clay. Turns out anyone can make a work of art if they have a good teacher! When I saw that our mugs were coming together as beautifully as they did, I was so excited to take something personal (and gorgeous!) home with us. We're coming back to finish glazing ASAP and I can't wait, you've GOT to check out Clay Date PDX.
