So here we are my friends May 1st. The safety of our wonderful community is what’s most Important to me. I hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. I was hoping that we would be able to resume classes this coming week. We are not a retail store so we don’t fall in the category of allowing folks in with social distancing in small numbers. As soon as we are given the OK we will start our spring / summer session. I understand that many of you are in financial crisis. If you have put a payment part or full on a class and need me to reimburse you please let me know. If the 2 month time change means you won’t be able to take a class during the summer months, I understand please just let me know. I know some of you are in a high risk category, I understand. I have divided our space into 2 separate areas to maintain social distancing. I have cleaned and taken every precaution to keep you safe. If you don’t feel comfortable I get it, please just let me know. If you will be able to jump in whenever the ok is given, I look forward to seeing you. Please just let me know ! I am trying to hang on as long as I can to keep our community open and thriving. Our community that’s what I care most about. Stay safe, healthy, enjoy your family time and if we are blessed the way I hope are we will be open soon. Much love ❤️ Michaela


Clay Cottage friends and students, we will not be able to hold classes the first week in April as we had hoped. It looks like now we will have to hold out until the first of May. As soon as we get the ok we will begin our spring session. I realize that the time table will not work for everyone and I know many of you that are unable to work may require a refund. Please let me know what you need me to do! I will to do my best to keep the Clay Cottage going. The most important thing to me is for everyone to stay safe and healthy. I have been packing up boxes of completed work! If you would like me to pack your pieces up, please let me know. I am offering back porch pickup so we have limited contact. I miss you all ❤️
Creativity yours, Michaela

Beautiful !


Beautiful to watch 👌


Hi Clay Cottage family, I’m not sure why my previous posts ended up in a reply 🤷‍♀️

The Clay Cottage will be postponing all classes until the first week in April. At that time we will re-evaluate the current situation and decide how we will move forward. Your health, wellbeing and safety are the most important thing to us. Please follow self quarantine guidelines so that we can flatten the curve and get back to the studio. Prayers and continued good health to all ❤️🙏


I have decided to follow Charleston county schools in canceling classes for this afternoon/ evening. The wind is really picking up so I feel it best to keep all of our young folks safe and tucked in. Please call me if you have any questions. Thanks 😊

Japan’s unusual way to view the world

Dear 2020, in this new year let us appreciate the beautiful creations we make. Help us to see that the slight imperfections in our work are as in nature works of beauty !

Japan’s unusual way to view the world Wabi-sabi offers a refuge from the modern world's obsession with perfection, and accepts imperfections as all the more meaningful – and, in their own way, beautiful.


Merry Christmas and a blessed Hanukkah to all the special friends and their families that make the Clay Cottage the amazing creative place it has become. I love you all ❤️


Join us Friday November 15th at 11:30 to celebrate Charleston Crafts new location !
