About Open Studio

If you have not used our studio before you must attend a 15 minute orientation bookable during our regular Open Studio hours. See below for orientation bookings.

If you've only ever dipped glazes, attending a "Glazing 101 ~ Paint-On" discovery workshop is required to participate in our Open Studio for glazing. See below for "Glazing 101" booking.

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, you MUST book in advance since we have a limited number available for use. 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 are feeling ill please do not come to the studio, we will make arrangements with you to reschedule.

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. 

 

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, and close the studio promptly at the end of the day.
