Located in Athens, Georgia, Good Dirt is a community clay studio with year-round pottery classes for adults and children and a gallery with a fine selection of work by professional artists.  If you have ever been interested in how pottery and ceramics are made, we hope you'll drop in and see us.  Our focus on community = something for everyone!

Good Dirt calendar

Our beloved students - we hope that this helps you plan out your practice times. Please note that this calendar reflects the most up-to-date information for the current week of events and lists parties, private lessons and some due dates for the business.  In other words, not every entry is a party so make sure you read the text and not just see the blue block before deciding to skip coming in.  Also, we often get last-minute bookings so be sure to check back often and before heading to the studio. At the bottom of the page, you can find a schedule for the current term for classes. Thank you and we hope this helps everyone out! Warmly, Rob & Jess
