For those with a curiosity for clay, La Mano is a one stop shop for doing it all. Wheel throwing and hand building classes are plentiful in supply, but La Mano also does some unique clay oriented classes such as their Silver Clay Workshop, as well as having kids and parent/child pottery classes. Having been in the business for more than 20 years and operating one of the finest pottery studios in Manhattan (in the heart of Chelsea, no less) is one thing, but they manage to make it all work with small, intimate classes, free practice time, and knowledgable teachers and assistants at the ready to give you personal attention. Whether you just want to blow some steam off after a long day, re-decorate your shelves with some self-made conversation pieces, or get deep into the world of becoming a master potter, La Mano has you covered. Just make sure you don't wear your favorite jeans, clay and cleanliness don't exactly see eye to eye!
