We love our furry friends, but for the safety of everyone, only members and staff are allowed to bring approved dogs.

We gotchu! We have everything here for you to use to have a great time:)

We recommend that you do! During your course, you have access to Open Studios, Tuesday-Sunday from 11am-6pm (Mondays are closed).

Come prepared to get messy! We recommend wearing comfortable clothing and close toed shoes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty. Clay and glaze does wash out, but it's best to leave your fave clothes at home.

For safety and occupancy regulations, we do not allow guests unless they are enrolled students or current members of Merritt Ceramics.

Tuesday through Sunday from 11am - 6pm. Mondays we are closed.

For Intro to the Wheel Courses, we do not recommend missing any classes as each week leads to the next. Students will generally fall behind if there are missed classes, so be sure to check your calendar ahead of time! If you need to make up a class, you may sit in on another Intro to the Wheel Class that same week. All Intro to the Wheel Courses follow the same schedule week to week. If you can’t make up a class that falls within that same week, there are no make ups. If you miss Week 6 for glazing and have never glazed before and cannot attend a make up class, students will have to schedule a 1hour private lesson on glazing in order to finish your work. PLEASE NOTE: There are only two spots available in each Intro Class for make-up students. Make-up spots are reservation-based and first come first serve. For inquiring about make-ups and reservations, please email For Handbuilding and Intermediate Courses there are no make-up classes.
