Ceramics School

Ceramics School is a community art school and artist residency program located in Hamtramck, MI - an extraordinary two square mile city within the city of Detroit. Our classes, memberships, residencies, studio access, and public programs offer a safe, supportive, critical, and comunal platform for art making and education.

The selected works exhibited here were created by members of Ceramics School’s community. 


Co-founded by Virginia Torrence and Henry Crissman, Ceramics School began as a pop-up at Popps Packing in the summer of 2019. Following that first summer of classes they held a kickstarter fundraiser and renovated the storefront attached to their rowhouse to be Ceramics School’s new home. The first floor of the connected rowhouse is Ceramics School’s artist residency apartment. Ceramics School officially opened in February of 2021.
