At Moonbeam's & Dolliwinkie's you can be creative with clay in a relaxing and nonjudgemental environment. We offer scheduled wheel time as well as hand building classes for all ages.

You can come in as an experienced artist and work on one of our wheels or as a beginner just putting your fingers into the clay for the first time.


Moonbeam's & Dolliwinkie's is a 15 year old dream come true. My idea to have a studio space where people could feel comfortable exploring their creative side began when my children were very small and I was throwing clay at a studio in my town of North Berwick, Maine. I fell in love with the art form as soon as I stuck my hands in the mud.  I feel that it is both practical and beautiful. When I'm throwing clay on the wheel, I find myself lost in the magic of creativity. I wanted to share this art form with other people in a studio environment. As my children got older, I found that they enjoyed the art form as much as I do.  So we decided to finally open Moonbeam's & Dolliwinkie's so that we could throw clay together and invite other people who are passionate about the art form to join us.
