Safety and Health Practices

In order to follow group safety protocols issued by city, state and federal agencies, we’re making some changes to our studio policies. We thank you for your understanding—your safety is our number one priority. Each department will implement new, strictly monitored cleaning and classroom use protocols. Our classes will be limited to 11 students per class instead of 18 to allow for social distancing. A face mask will be mandatory to participate.

Take a Pottery Class, Learn Something New!

Chicago Ceramic Center is the ideal destination for the beginning potter all the way to the most seasoned and advanced sculptor.
Our facility is located in the historic Bridgeport Art Center, located 5 miles south of downtown Chicago.  With ample parking, we offer weekly adult pottery classes and kid’s workshops.  In addition to our exceptional facility, we are also pleased to be home of Circle Line Gallery with ongoing ceramic exhibitions and performances and pottery events.
