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

Clay Dates

Friday evening Clay Dates are returning in July, and sign up is avaiable now. Please go to our Clay Date page to sign up.

Even with the extra class, classes fill up quickly. We are typically booking several months in advance. Please plan ahead if you are looking to book a Clay Date, espcially if you have a group of people. Classes are adults only, and we try to keep them to around 8 students. More information is available on our Clay Date page.

Pottery Classes

We currently have a higher demand for classes than we can accomodate. This means that our 2022 Beginning Pottery classes have filled for the year.

We now have more people on our waiting list than we have class spaces. If you would like to be notified when we post our 2023 scheudle, please email us at [email protected]. Include your name, email, and phone number. We will add you to the waiting list, but you probably won't get contacted for a class this year. We will contact people on the waitlist when we post our 2023 schedule in the fall (usually in Ocotber).


If you are interested in learning more about membership at Fired Up Studios, you call us at 612-852-2787 to schedule a membership tour. Tours are avilable by appointment only; no walk-ins, please.

We currently have a waiting list for new studio members. Please email us or call us to be put on the waiting list. We will call you when a space becomes availalbe so please include your phone number if you email us.

Ask the Potter

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, 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.

July 2022

Monday, July 25 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Nick Kosack will be discussing glazing with an emphasis on using the studio glazes. This is a repeat of his Saturday session in April.

September 2022

Satruday, September 17 from 10 a.m.m - Noon. TBD.

Monday, September 26 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Clarice Allgood will be demonstrating jars with lids. She is also asking everyone to bring a pot for group feedback. This is a great way to discuss what you made over the summer.

Please note that last minute changes to this scheudle can happen due to instructor avaiability. We will do our best to update the website and studio signs promptly, but it takes time.


Our gallery is open for shopping during our regular office hours. No appointment is required. Our Gallery page has details about our shopping restrictions.
