Finger Lakes Pottery Tour
The Ithaca Clay School is committed to providing a vibrant, creative space for community members to work with clay, and learn alongside fellow creatives, from local professional and emerging potters. Our goal is to foster a sense of community among students of all ages and enrich their continuing education through shared experiences around making art. Classes, workshops and shelf rentals are offered all year round.
Local business owners Tina & Tammie of Cinch Art Space have partnered with local potter and owner of Claybed Ceramics, Ed Feldman to create Cortland’s first community pottery studio, in the historic Cortland Corset Building on the city’s East Side.
The Gandee Gallery is located in the village of Fabius, south of Syracuse, NY, which is in close proximity to many recreational attractions and activities, including Highland Forest Park and Pratt’s Falls Park, Toggenburg and Labrador Ski areas, and the Labrador Hollow Unique Area.
