Who we are & what we do

Scenic City Clay Arts is a community-driven non-profit that provides a ceramic studio space to the Chattanooga area. We offer classes and workshops to all ages and skill levels. We also offer a studio membership option to those who want to continue learning and working in clay. Our members have access to our ceramic studio anytime during open studio hours to create their own works of art. We provide wheels, slab rollers, shelf space, handbuilding and wheelthrowing tools, over 20 different glazes mixed in-house, and kiln firings. We have three different types of clay available for purchase as well. 

Come get your hands dirty with us! We host classes and workshops taught by some of the best instructors in the region.

Scenic City Clay Arts is located in the bottom floor of the Artsbuild building at 301 E. 11th Street #100 in Chattanooga, TN.
