Welcome to our courses or become a monthly member at our studio in the heart of beautiful Kallio, Torkkelinmäki.

Clayhem Ceramics Studio - Helsinki

The studio features six large worktables, accommodating multiple creators at once.

Tools for clay processing and pottery wheels are also available. Clay can be purchased on site, and basic glazes (white, light pink, and transparent) are included in the monthly membership fee.

Membership also provides a personal shelf for drying and storing unfinished work.

Joining is this easy!

If you're already familiar with the basics of ceramics, you can directly purchase a monthly pass and enjoy crafting on your own.

If you're starting from scratch, or your skills are at a primary school level, we recommend taking a beginner's course.

You can find our Courses and monthly memberships in our course store.

First step - master the basics with 'Ceramics for Beginners'

Join our beginner/basic course to grasp the essentials of ceramics. Our instructors are the experienced and inspiring ceramic designers, Sami Rinne and Elina Sallinen. After the basics of hand-building, it's easy to master two other techniques: slip casting and wheel throwing. We offer courses in both. If the courses are sold out, don't worry, we continuously open more. Information about new courses is always shared on our Instagram @clay_hem.

Second step membership

The best way to improve in ceramics is by doing! Join as a monthly member, and you'll have the flexibility to work with clay whenever it suits you best, without any rush.

Monthly memberships are sold in one or two-month packages.

The membership includes: access to the studio during opening hours, a personal shelf for your clay works, basic glazes, and use of communal tools. Clay and additional glazes are available for purchase at the studio, and there is a small fee for firing services. Firing prices can be found under the "Studio" section.

How Clayhem Got Started

"I visited The Pottery Studio in Los Angeles, and its founder, Marshall Blair, showed me around and shared their story. I realized that I too wanted to be part of a community like this."
