The Carbondale Clay Center is known throughout the community for bringing great work by national ceramic artists to the Roaring Fork Valley in the form of excellent exhibits. But the other side of the Clay Center is its classes. Serving both children and adults all year long, the Carbondale Clay Center offers ceramics classes taught by top local artists as well as its artists in residence.

The Clay Center’s May exhibit, “Scratch and Attach,” celebrates its students, past and present, by showing their work in the gallery. The exhibit highlights the impact of the Carbondale Clay Center through the work of its students.
