Where art & community meet

Core Clay’s mission is founded on a promise of community, inclusion, and education. We firmly believe that the clay arts should be accessible to everyone, our goals are to provide an enriching and supportive environment to all our neighbors. We will always strive to create a safe space for individual development, while keeping our eyes to the collaborative possibilities within our Ohio/Northern Kentucky communities. Come visit our new location in Norwood and see all the exciting changes we have in store.

You can call (513-351-0036) or email (studio@coreclay.com) us to let us know when you would like to come in for the first time (we figure you will need some help getting situated). We are still working on the new space but we're fully functional and socially distanced.

Who we are

Community + Art + Clay

Founded in 2005, Core Clay is a community of artists and students working side-by-side in a friendly environment that encourages and inspires artistic growth. We currently have 40+ artists working out of our studio.

We believe everyone has an artist inside them, looking to express themselves and we want to help you find your artistic voice. Each and every one of our artists has experience in the studio and in the classroom meaning you get not only teachers with great art technique, but also great teaching technique too. We offer classes for wheel-throwing and hand-building,  (ranging from beginner to advanced) but we don't stop there, we also house workshops and group events.


Are you looking for material for your own studio? We sell products ranging from dry clay materials to commercial glazes. We also have a large variety of tools for sale, including, Kemper, Mudtools, and more.


Please get in touch today to learn more about what we can do for your artistic journey.

Our most popular classes

During the Covid 19 pandemic, we have some changes to our class set up.

We are reducing the number of class members to 4 and masks must be worn at all times. We ask you to monitor your health and at any point that you feel you may be exposed, let us know and you can make up a class in another session.​
