Bodgery Grand Opening

Our future neighbor, The Bodgery, will be holding a Grand Opening event today 9/21/19, 12-5pm at 740 Oscar Ave. Stop by to see all the cool making possibilities available at their new 14,000 sf location! MCP will be set up next door with information about what is coming this October for us at 742 Oscar Ave! See you there!

Coming Soon: MCP at 742 Oscar Ave.

Early Fall Classes start 9/10

Make your creation from start to finish this fall at MCP.

The kids are back in school, temperatures are cooling, and the Winnebago Street reconstruction is complete. It sounds like the time is right to sign up for a pottery class. Spaces are still available in Wheel 1, Wheel 2, and Handbuilding 1…but space is limited so enroll now!

Happy 4th of July

We’re taking a break and hope you enjoy some well-earned time off as well! Midwest Clay will have reduced hours the week of July 1-6. No open studio drop-in or general hours available this week. Please email with questions or requests.

Members may enjoy continued access, but studio services (kilns, clay, and glazes) will be suspended 7/4-7/6. Students, please feel free to take advantage of the alternate schedule emailed to you.


Our last batch of clay classes in our Winnebago St. location gets underway the week of June 16. There is still space available in most classes, but time is running out. Sign up through our ONLINE REGISTRATION page.

Get your hands on clay this summer at MCP!

The Early Fall class session will be held in our new (and improved) location! Registration will begin late June with more details to come on the space soon.

Spring Gallery Night 5/3, 5-9pm

Come by the studio 5-9pm Friday, May 3rd to check out the latest and greatest creations from a selection of our current studio members! This will be our last Gallery Night in our current location (bittersweet but more exciting news to come on that soon!)
