About The Clay Teacher® and

Out of the Fire Studio®


Cindy Clarke, The Clay Teacher, has potted all her life, first as a child with clay from her mother's garden in Dawson Creek British Columbia, then in elementary and high schools and finally as a profession. Cindy and her husband Jim Willett own and operate Out of the Fire Studio in the historic Coutts Village School located in the Village of Coutts Alberta. Cindy has taught pottery making to students at all age and proficiency levels and has a special bond with school age children. Cindy is featured in a video for beginning potters called "A Down to Earth Look at How We Make Pottery"   and it is available for sale here.

Fun Clay Projects craft kits are some of our most popular classroom projects made available for home use. 30 minutes of instruction on DVD plus all the materials required to make two projects are packaged in a handy reusable, resealable pail.
