Clay Works Open Studio

Fall Kill Clay Works is a community clay studio located at 485 Main Street, in the Middle Main neighborhood of downtown Poughkeepsie. Our studio is spacious, bright, and well-equipped. Open Studio is for artists with more advanced skills to work independently. 

We offer:

  • ten pottery wheels

  • four large hand-building tables

  • a slab roller

  • an extruder

  • three electric kilns

  • white and red clay available for purchase at $16/box


Firing fees are charged at the rate of $0.06 per cubic inch (about $3-6 for a standard-sized mug). This fee includes the glaze firing. Glazes are provided, but you may bring in personal Cone 6 glazes if you wish.
