hello somerville!

Commonwealth Clayworks is a pottery studio offering classes and studio membership to the greater Somerville community.


We work to create a welcoming community by connecting people through clay.  With help from a grant from the Somerville Arts Council and Massachusetts Cultural Council, we are building the Clayworks Companion program that works to enable senior citizens and people with limited mobility in the studio.
