Housed within the sprawling historic Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brooklyn Clay Industries invites aspiring potters into their industrial studio and gallery within renovated Building 3. Founded by Master Potter Reuben King, BCI offers daily group classes and events for artists just getting started all the way up to established ceramic devotees.
Beginners first learn foundations during relaxed 2-hour intro sessions on one of BCI's electric pottery wheels.
Reuben earns praise for clearly explaining each step from centering clay to pulling basic vessels while accommodating questions.
Attendees take home 1-2 pieces to be fired for a small additional fee, ready for pickup about a month later.
Beyond intro classes, BCI provides opportunities for emerging artists to advance through associate programs, teaching assignments, internships, and open studio access.
Aspiring ceramicists develop technical skills and creative perspectives while giving back by leading community initiatives and educational events.
Surrounded by the work of talented resident artists, newcomers find inspiration on their artistic journey while contributing to BCI's enriching culture.
Whether a total novice getting their hands dirty on the wheel for the first time or a devoted ceramicist pushing their firing capabilities, BCI's welcoming atmosphere facilitates rewarding growth.
