Park West Ceramics – Chicago Pottery Classes for adults!

PWC was founded in 1997 in Chicago’s historic neighborhood of Lincoln Park. Like the area it’s nestled in, the studio is an intimate space with friendly and inviting people. You’ll find a wide variety of beginners to advanced students, and independent artists to ceramic sellers. If you’re looking for a space where everyone knows your name and have time to yourself, then this is the perfect place for you.


The studio has 18 Shimpo wheels, two Bailey kilns, two wedging tables, a slab roller and over 15 glazes. There are four rooms total; two front rooms with floor to ceiling windows that face Halsted Avenue (adult side and kids side) and a large back room with sinks, glazes, tools and tons of shelving and lockers! Stop by to check out the space!
