Our Mission

Seward Park Clay Studio’s mission is to promote the growth of the ceramic arts.  Located in the most beautiful park along Lake Washington, Seward Park Clay Studio has been a vital element in the Northwest’s visual arts community since 1970. We offer community classes in wheel throwing and hand building for adults and children, in both low-fire and high-fire temperature ranges. Our teachers are among the best in the region, and are recognized nationally and internationally for their work. Students are invited to make work outside of class time in our open studio hours available every day of the week. We welcome you to take a class, participate in our workshops, or by giving financially to help others take part in the many opportunities that we offer.

A Place to make art

What better place to make clay art than an old brick building nestled in a park full of old growth trees, beaches and wildlife? Seward Park Clay Studio has been incorporated as a non-profit educational ceramics institution and run by a Board of directors since 1986.

A Diverse Mix

We serve over 9000 people every year through our classes, our workshops and lecture series, our annual sales and our collaborative shows with local galleries. Part of the joy of working in this environment has been the stretching of the soul that happens when excellent teachers, students and artists work together.
