Overview

Directed by American wood-firing ceramic artist, Hillary Kane, Gaya Ceramic Arts Center (Gaya CAC) offers a stimulating program of international workshops, continuous weekly wheel throwing classes, and a fabulous ceramic resident artist program. Some might ask... why come half way around the world to learn throwing skills, or to fire a kiln? In our view, setting is everything! Our annual calendar of world class ceramic workshops reflects this: approaching clay not only from the standpoint of a skill-building experience, but also as a creative exploration, tapping stimuli from landscape, architecture, cuisine and culture that cannot be found anywhere else but here in Bali. Gaya CAC coordinates every detail so that participants can focus on the experience at hand—and that experience is indelible: Bali offers fecundity at every juncture---the creative interpretations are endless. WORKSHOPS… Two-week intensive programs taught by internationally renowned ceramic artists from all over the world. CONTINUOUS CLASSES… Weekly tutelage, private lessons, and studio membership passes for an on-the-ground audience. ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM … two-month opportunities for concentration, growth and exposure, attracting professional ceramicists worldwide.

We visited the two Gaya galleries, over the road from each other. One fine art and exclusive pieces, the other homewares. Both lovely and really worth visiting - a short taxi from the centre of Ubua

They do have drop by when they are not running classes. I am not sure if they have any workshops at the moment. You should email them. They are fairly quick with their responses.
