A place to learn / space to create


We're committed to nurturing a community that welcomes both experienced and beginner ceramicists to explore, inspire, and share knowledge. We hope to further education in the ceramic arts at all levels by providing after school programs, partnering with local organizations and inviting artists to share their craft through teaching.

The Space

Hand/Thrown is 1,000 sq/ft of open floor plan built to nurture creative energy and help makers further their studio practice. We have space for members, host classes, workshops and events, and hold space for the community to come learn and enjoy ceramic arts. We’re a multifunctional space for an ever growing city.


The People

Richmond is chock full of ceramicists; a community of artists, educators, beginner and advanced makers. We saw a need for a studio that could provide space and know-how to the artists who wanted to expand their offering without taking on the responsibility of starting their own space. So we took a leap and opened Hand/Thrown. We’re a studio for you, and we couldn’t be more excited to be here.
