Seward Park Clay Studio has been a vital element in the Northwest's visual arts community since 1969. We serve more than 5000 people every year through our classes, our workshops and lecture series, our annual sales and our collaborative shows with local galleries.

KOBO first opened its doors in 1995 on Capitol Hill featuring the work of small studio artisans of Japan and the functional work of Northwest artists. Exhibits are scheduled 5 times each year showing carefully selected examples of fine craftsmanship and design.
