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

Spring Pottery Class registration is coming in early March. Please sign up for Our Email List to get notification of upcoming classes and registration dates. Make sure you indicate that you wish to receive notifications about Classes when you sign up. If you don't see a confirmation email after you sign up, check your SPAM.

Clay Dates

We offer Clay Dates on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Classes are small so space is limited and they can fill up quickly. Please plan ahead if you are looking to book a Clay Date, especially if you have a group of people.

Classes are adults only, and we try to keep them to around 8 students. More information and registraion is available on our Clay Date page.

Ask the Potter is a program designed for our current members who are looking for instruction beyond Beginning Pottery classes or just have a one-off question. Twice a month, we have an instructor available to our members for feedback, critique, demonstrations, 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.
