stay-at-home CLAY at HOME!

stay-at-home CLAY at HOME!

We at Firebird Community Arts prioritize our entire community's safety and physical and mental health. During COVID 19 and anti-racist uprisings we all really need to have healing artistic outlets to process our fast changing world. Firebird will provide that in a way that is super safe through our stay-at-home CLAY at HOME classes. You can choose one class for $50 or three for $120. If you hold a Firebird punchcard that's three punches for one class or 9 for a three class bundle. 

You can pick up pre-made personalized supply packs from our studio contact free and then virtual live classes will greet you in the comfort of your home. Completed work can then be dropped off for firing once you're done.

Tools vary from class to class, but build off of basics so we can easily create packs for folks taking multiple classes. You can pick-up tools or drop-off completed work once you're done taking classes every Monday from 3pm-8pm or other times by appointment if needed.
