Outlaw Arts (formerly Six Senses Clay Studio) is a small ceramic studio in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. We’ve been here for 10 years, quietly inviting people from NW Philly and the surrounding area to come on in and get their creative juices flowing. Our studio is made up of good people who are happy to be helpful, often intuitively wise, ever compassionate and fun. It’s the people here that make this place warm and comfortable. Plus we have excellent equipment, materials, and tools. We offer three different colors of cone 6 stoneware clay, and have over 50 different glazes, plus slips & underglazes. Our three electric kilns are in the basement, and a gas kiln is being built in the back yard. We also have gallery space in our windows and like to show off work from our professional potters and sculptors, as well as our beginners.
COVID-19 has brought big changes to our little studio. Our new offerings are as follows:
Independent-studio-time is our new normal for our experienced studio members, maximizing time in the studio (up to 3 hours plus an extra 1/2 hr for clean up) while minimizing the number of bodies (up to 2 households or one safe group).
For newcomers and those who want a refresher, we have 2 adult classes (4-week sessions, 3hrs. long) led by different teachers each month. Both classes, Basics of Handbuilding, and Basics of Throwing, are small and safe. Only 2-4 students per class, masks on, 6ft apart, windows and doors open.
Advanced Skill-Building workshops (1-2hrs long) are offered to studio members who have completed at least one Basics class series.
2 children’s classes, set up in 4-week sessions, (1.5hrs long, no more than 5 students) are taught by Martha Knox. More classes may be offered during the summer months.
