Clay and Glaze Handbook

Our Clay and Glaze Handbook is a compilation of all the recipes we use to make materials at the Pottery. All information within it has been handed down through the years. Pursuing the highest standard in education, we offer this information so our students and the entire world has free access to information that has taken over a century to acquire and as long to refine.

A copy of our Clay and Glaze Handbook is available for purchase for $30 in the Administration Office, or you may download the Clay and Glaze Handbook for free here.

Student Handbook

Our Student Handbook is provided to remind returning students and to acquaint new students with Greenwich House Pottery’s (GHP) guidelines. We encourage each student to become familiar with this information to ensure that things run safely and smoothly in the studios, so we can provide you with the best experience possible. Read the guidelines for Jones Street here and for Chelsea here.
