Dear PoPville – Question about Art Facilities in DC

Photo by PoPville flickr user yostinator

Dear PoPville,

I am hoping you might have some insights about community art facilities in DC. I am looking for a fully equipped ceramics studio to use (and not one that requires taking classes and whatnot).

Do you have any leads??

    There’s a ceramics studio under Eastern Market– your question made me curious so I looked up their website. Apparently they have evening classes Monday through Thursday and an open studio on Saturdays between 1 and 5. I’m not sure if the open studio is for registered students only, but it’s worth asking. I’ve peeked in on Saturdays and have never seen anyone in there.

    • Thanks for the tip! I found the studio you are referring to and am emailing them now–hopefully it will be just the spot I’ve been looking for!

  • You should check out the Route 1 Arts District in the Hyattsville area. It’s a big corridor with artist housing and showrooms, etc. I’m sure someone around there has a ceramics studio.

  • I walk by one every day, it’s on Kalorama right near Harris Teeter in adams morgan. not sure what the name is or what the policy is, but it looks like people are just doing their own thing in there.

  • and what about the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria? by the water front.

  • The studio on Kalorama, Hinkley Pottery, requires open studio participants to be enrolled in a class. Sorry!

    Ah cool, here’s the link to Space Finder:

    A PoPville twitter follower tells us:

    Bright Leaf Pottery in Columbia Heights!

  • Check out Glen Echo Park in Bethesda – they have a lot of art classes and facilities. Not sure if they have much in the way of ceramics and not sure you can use it without taking a class, but maybe! Worth looking into at any rate.
