Clayspace, in Eugene's Whiteaker neighborhood, is a well equipped, friendly place to work with clay. There is also a small shop selling the work of regular members. You can drop in for a great rainy day family activity, take classes, individual instruction by the hour, or work on your own and let the experts fire your work. Clayspace provides clay, wheels, tools, high fire glazes, and help on a one time, class enrollment, or regular membership fee basis. There's plenty of space for working in a group or individually in this converted cannery, and the staff and regulars offer as much or as little help as you wish. I've used Clayspace to revive and expand my own interest in ceramics and brought groups of friends, adults and kids, here for just an afternoon or evening of playing with clay. It takes a month or so to complete most projects because clay has to dry slowly and undergo two firings; one time creators can return to glaze their own work - without another charge- or ask staff to do that and return only to collect their finished pieces.
