Easthampton Clay was founded in October 2018 by Liz Rodriguez, a former corporate executive turned full-time potter.
Liz knows first-hand the positive effects of clay. She has longed to host a pottery community where people could unplug, connect with one another through this beautiful craft, and get back to the earth.
Clay grounds us in a way that no other medium can. It soothes us, and demands a great deal of our presence simultaneously.
Who We Are
Easthampton Clay (EHC) is a community based pottery school and cooperative in the heart of Easthampton, Massachusetts. EHC has offered the Pioneer Valley a unique opportunity for clay work and play since October 2018. We offer a range of entry points for clay enthusiasts at all levels through classes, workshops, summer camps, outreach programming and events focusing on the ceramic arts. Our space is one where artists can be creative, receive a rich and varied educational experience, and participate in a large artistic community.
As a community of ceramic artists, we strive to cultivate a safe and inclusive space under our roof that fosters growth and development. At EHC we believe that clay can be a medium to promote connection, learning, healing, and creativity.
