About Wright Hand Studio Pottery Classes

WRIGHT HAND STUDIO is a fully equipped clay studio located in Hagerstown, Maryland. Steve Wright teaches five classes weekly, teaching both Wheel and Handbuilding Techniques. The studio is Steve Wright’s personal studio where he produces his own work. There he provides a clean, fun, community environment where students can learn and explore the endless possibilities of working with clay.

The studio offers over 1,200 square feet of working space. Equipment includes eight electric potters wheels, slab roller, clay extruder and two electric kilns. Students can choose from different clay bodies and can experiment with a large selection of beautiful glazes. All clay and glazes are oven-safe, lead-free and suitable for functional use.

For those of you interested in the studio please stop by for a visit. Some classes can full up quickly, so if you would like to sign up, please contact me about availability. I like to cap the classes at 8 students.

Adult classes are offered Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings 5:30-9:00 and Tuesday and Wednesday days from 10:00-1:30. The cost for the seven-week adult session is $240.00. Cost includes one 25-pound bag of clay and glazing and firing cost. Also, regular Open Studio times will be offered.
