Clay/Pottery in Zurich area

Hi all,
I'm a huge lover of clay and pottery, and it's something I have been really missing since I moved here from Italy. I used to attend a course from an artist who would dedicate one evening per week at teaching different techniques and then just providing a space where to create... a variety of colors to use... and an oven for cooking... at a very good price.
Even if you didn't want to do the classes anymore (because you had a project of your own) you could use the oven and colors for a small fee.

Now... I'm not even looking for "good prices" anymore!!!! Really, I don't care.
I'm just looking for a place where I could find something similar.

I've tried the Migros clay course, but did not like it that much. Mainly because you have to buy the clay there (that is totally fine) but then you have to BUY your own creation BACK
At the same time you are not allowed to work on something at home and then use the oven, even if paying for it.

So... I was wondering if there are any other clay passionates in the group who went through this already, and have some suggestions

Thanks a lot,
Vale

Pretty sure one or two of the GZ will have an oven.

GZ = Community Center.

Re: Clay/Pottery in Zurich area

I am also a pottery enthusiast (wheel throwing) and have been trying to find a place near Biel/Bienne or Bern to either take classes or just use facilities to make my own stuff. I'll check out the community centers in the area but am not hopeful that they will have pottery facilities.

This is my first post, so please forgive me if I've missed something.
