Sculpture Class

Clay is a unique material for sculpture. It's flexible, can be carved from, or added to.

Come learn the skills needed to sculpt your own ideas into being at Make Waynesboro Clay Studio. It's a fun, no-pressure environment to try out your ideas, while learning the techniques you need to bring them to life. Students in this class will learn handbuilding techniques that can be used for sculpture, but which can also be the basis for all sorts of handbuilt ceramic pieces. This class is intended for anyone from those who have never touched clay to those who have some experience but want to learn a new set of skills.

Students in this class must be at least 16 years old.

What's it cost? What's the fee include?

A six-week class session costs $150.00 per student. Members of the SVAC and SAAC receive a 10% discount.

The $150 class fee includes 6 weeks of instruction, clay, use of studio tools, and firing credit. (Firing credit is limited. You'll be able to bisque some of your pieces, and glaze fire up to a half-shelf of work. Trust us-- that's enough. If you want to fire more, you'll be able to pay extra for it.)


The studio's address is 200 W 12th St., Waynesboro VA 22980.

The studio is part of a larger complex at The Mill at South River. Students will be provided with specific directions (including code for the gate, which you need after 5pm) before the first class.


This session will be taught by Allison Smith. Allison Carole Smith is a ceramic sculptor who was raised in Fluvanna County, a small rural area located in Palmyra. Allison’s foundations in art began as a child, her interest in art continuing to flourish when she attended Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville, Virginia under the Fine Arts course of study. Upon her acceptance into Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Allison earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Craft and Material Studies with a focus in ceramic sculpture. She is now proud to be a part of the Make Waynesboro team and looks forward to creating work with students and artists alike to help continue her love of art and help others find their passion for making.
