Jill Hinckley teaches throwing a large bowl

Visit our new studio

Come see our beautiful studio in the heart of historic Georgetown! We love so many things about this new, larger space – high ceilings, lots of windows, near the C&O Canal and great restaurants. Our showroom displays an array of work by Jill Hinckley. The second floor accommodates another classroom as well as independent workspaces.

Clay for young potters

In our classes for young potters aged 9-14,

students learn how to center a mound of clay on the potter’s wheel and how to throw, trim and glaze their pots. All learn how to make cups, bowls and other simple forms and to refine their skills.

The fall session began September 10. The winter session will begin in January 2018 with registration opening in November.
