SBAP is a place where clay meets community! Lunch hour. After work. After dinner. Bring your mom, kids, friends, and co-workers... We are inspired by people like you who knows there's more to life than homework, meetings, budgets and deadlines. As a non-profit organization we are committed to improving the lives of Saint Louis kids, teens, adults, residents, and visitors of different neighborhoods, different jobs, identities and backgrounds. Whether you are looking for pottery classes, pottery painting, wheel throwing, Clay Date Night, or classes for kids and teens we are here for you...
We love creatives who believe in making things by hand and don't mind getting messy or dirty. You need a place to get away from it all. Start an Etsy shop. Make your own mug or dinnerware set, or work on your portfolio. Even if you have never touched clay before you can find your path here. All of our staff and instructors are highly skilled, experienced and qualified to help you on your MaK-ing journey...
