La Mano Pottery is a full service ceramic studio located in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. Opened in 1998, La Mano provides a welcoming studio environment for beginners and experienced potters. Here, everyone can relax, learn, and enhance their creativity while working with clay.

Classes are offered weekly for those interested in hand building or using the potter’s wheel to make unique handmade items. The class schedule includes a wide array of programs for adults as well as teenagers, young children (over age 5), and for parent/child groups. Private lessons are also available.

All classes are small, and are designed to help students develop and advance their skills and creativity (see descriptions and schedule below). Teachers freely share their enthusiasm for pottery and offer personal assistance to help students realize their ideas. Ample practice time is available to all students at no additional charge, and there is always a knowledgeable studio assistant on duty.

La Mano is equipped with 29 electric pottery wheels for throwing. A separate area is set up for hand building, complete with slab roller and extruder. Six electric kilns, firing regularly to cone 05 and cone 5, allow for the production of hundreds of beautiful pieces each week. Two distinct clay bodies, and a unique collection of glaze recipes (mixed right in the studio), offer a palette of colors for all tastes and projects. Small pottery tools, clean towels and aprons, as well as an extensive library of ceramic books and magazines are made available for everyone working in our space.

This place seems to be pretty unstructured, and the woman by the front desk was pretty rude too. However, the space itself is clean, spacious and comfortable to be in.

Teaches you the fundamentals of wheel throwing in a fun and accessible manner. A perfect way to spend an afternoon or early evening.

I think it was over priced, considering that you have to pay extra to take what you've built after $75 worth class for pottery.

I had such a wonderful time, the only downside was the time; this didn't stop me enjoying the class! The instructor was really sweet and patient. I hope to re-take the class, just have her guidance
