About Open Studio

Drop-ins welcome, however booking in advance is recommended to secure a spot. If you would like to use our pottery wheel during Open Studio, please book in advance since we have a limited number available for use.

Upon completion of Beginner Level 1 class (or equivalent level of experience) you are eligible to participate in our Open Studio times to continue your skill building of clay techniques including: clay bodies, glazes, creative and functional forms.

 

This time is for practicing and improving skills you have learned, not instruction time.

A studio tech will be there to assist but this is to be considered independent working time.

 

If you have not used our studio before you must attend a 15 minute orientation bookable Saturday or Sunday. See below for orientation bookings.

The best part? At the end, you take your dirty clay tools to the sink and move your piece to an area where it won't be damaged. After that you are welcome to leave without lifting another finger.

If you are feeling ill please do not come to the studio, we will make arrangements with you to reschedule.

If you are itching to create or glaze, please give us a call to let us know that you are coming! We close EARLY if we have no bookings or call aheads. We close the studio promptly at the end of the day.
