Draw for yourself the floral or portrait paintings on immaculate ceramics as seen in window displays and cupboards, the countless pieces that everyone has dreamt of in their youth.
Bring a vivid world to life with a few simple brush strokes and decorations, and each time the baking kiln opens a new piece of ceramic art will be yours and yours alone.
Students use Noritake’s original clay and paint colors.

The Porcelain Crafts Class enables students to learn fundamental techniques for creating figurines, flowers and accessories.
Students shape and paint the clay to the form and color they desire and then bake it in the kiln for the final finish.
Highly experienced instructors with Noritake are available to provide easy to understand instruction from start to finish.
Inspiration for art work can be drawn from any source, such as a figurine modeled after your daughter who will soon be married. Pieces from the class make thoughtful gifts for loved ones. Join us in creating your own truly unique and original creation.
