Maho Bay Clay Works, located on the small tropical island of St John in the US Virgin Islands, has everything you need to get creative with clay. If you are a visitor, our 2-3 hour classes for kids and adults add a creative dimension to your island experience. Our expert teaching staff makes it easy and fun. Take a break from the tropical sun to throw a pot on one of our 12 potter's wheels!

Raku in the Caribbean Workshop
Rescheduled to May 2nd - 8th

Due to a family emergency the workshop was rescheduled.  I think the timing is great as accommodations rates and airfares have come down, So please consider joining us. We have a really great workshop planned. I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best , Gail

Visiting Artist Workshops bring nationally known clay artist/teachers to our island for a week or a weekend to share their expertise, work and play alongside you for a fun and rewarding learning experience. Come work and play with "Raku Guru" Steven Branfman May 2-8, 2005
