Clay on Main is a non-profit art community and studio resource center.
Clay on Main offers artists time and space to create in clay. The studio developed from a collaboration of artists who regularly work together. Each person brings their own style and ability to a cooperative studio environment that allows discovery, collaboration, and personal development.
We serve the local community with a variety of clay arts programs. We teach community classes and workshops in clay for adults and children, host professional workshops, collaborate with other non-profit organizations to offer learning opportunities through art, and hold public lectures and events.
Clay on Main also houses a cooperative gallery which serves as a venue for the display and sale of members’ and guest artists’ work. We also host the Half Moon Cafe, a venue for local musicians.
We are located on Main Street in the historic village of Oley PA. We are housed in a 19th century farmhouse, once the site of the Heffley family bakery. The township of Oley, a rural mix of farmland, forest, and quaint villages is on the National Register of Historic Places. Rural Berks County, a center of Pennsylvania German red ware continues to inspire clay artists to experiment with creative and contemporary work. Oley is about an hour’s drive northwest of Philadelphia and three hours from New York City.
Clay on Main is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization. We seek community support and wish to work cooperatively with other community non-profit organizations.
