ThePottery is a welcoming outdoor studio where adults can create with clay. Our relaxing environment encourages creative freedom, and whether you’re a novice or an old pro, you’ll get inspiration from being with others who love what they are doing. No matter what you create — functional or decorative, two-dimensional or sculptural, colorful or natural — the work you produce is uniquely yours. There’s nothing like letting go of your worries and making something with your hands. So come feel the mud!

Borrego Springs High School
The Pavilion Update
Which will house the new pottery studio, green house, administrative space, class space and restrooms, has evolved greatly over the last few years. Plans have changed from a simple open air work studio to a multi-million dollar facility. Expanding plans and working through the permitting process during covid has resulted in a large delay with the county. The building is still very much a part of the future of Borrego Art Institute and donations earmarked for the new building are in a special fund to be spent once construction commences.
working at ThePottery can now use the Borrego Art Institute branding
mark. Our pottery members upheld the tradition of marking their pottery
individually, but now they can also add this mark to show the studio and
location it was made in.
Pretty soon, you can collect pottery made by a BAI pottery member.
TheGallery has a permanent spot for ThePottery to showcase the latest work our members are creating. Stop by and see what is coming in. Great affordable pricing makes these items wonderful gifts!
