Update: The Ceramic Art & Culture Institute has recently reevaluated its mission and long term plans. Because of this, our Board has made the difficult choice to sell the Hendel House, the building that currently houses the Institute in Reading, PA. Our organization will be moving to a new location in Lancaster County during summer 2019. Because of this, paid classes as of May 2019 will discontinue until we open at our new location.
