Welcome to Fired Up Studios

Fired Up Studios is a community pottery studio located in Golden Valley, MN. It was created to provide the space and equipment to allow clay artists and potters of all levels to explore their creativity and work in a supportive environment. We offer a variety of services including a retail gallery, pottery classes, and membership options.

What's New

Pottery Classes

We have added a new class for students looking to learn beyond the basics of Begining Pottery. Beginning Pottery Part 2 is for students who know how to throw a cylinder and bowl and want to learn more. We only have one class scheudled this fall to see how much demand we get. Don't wait to sign up if you are interested.

Beginning Pottery classes are limited and adults only. We have added an October class to our schedule, but it is filling up quickly. Please go to our Beginning Pottery page for more information about the changes and to sign up. The 2022 schedule will not be posted until mid-October or early November.

Ask the Potter

We have started a new workshop program for our members called Ask the Potter. This program is designed for our members who are looking for instruction beyond Beginning Pottery classes or just have a one-off question. Twice a month (1 Saturday morning and 1 Wednesday evening) we have an instructor available to our members for feedback, critque, demonstraions, or whatever pottery help they are looking for. The program is free for both firing and studios members. It is not available for non-members.

Our next session is Wednesday, July 28 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Ernest will be answering whatever questions you bring adn doing demos as requested.
