Hours of Operation
Members enjoy their own wheel/handbuilding area and personal dedicated shelves. Members have access to the wheels and handbuilding tables during regular business hours (shown below). There is a three month minimum commitment. A one month security deposit will be collected at registration. Shelves are assigned.
Open Studio Membership
Open Studio Membership allows the member to work in the studio during open studio hours only (see below) but you are not required to be enrolled in a class. Open studio members use the classroom wheels and handbuilding tables at a first come, first served basis. There are no assigned shelves for open studio members, all members share a communal shelf area. The open hours are subject to change and the studio is closed for major holidays, interim cleanings, and private events. A one month security deposit will be collected at registration.
Open Studio Hours (Open Studio hours may change based on classes and events)
Open studio will begin on 4pm until 6:30pm on Saturday December 1st.
Studio Use - Per Hour Rate
Studio time can be rented on an hourly basis for $15/hour per person. If you want to keep any of the pieces you make there is a $10 firing fee for works 6” or less in the longest dimension; larger works may be subject to higher fees
The wheel takes time to learn for both adults and children. If you are interested in coming in for the per hour rate to use the wheel it would be a good idea to take a private lesson or a class first if you do not have experience. Experience is required.
If you want to bring a child, please contact us ahead of time, the wheel is ok for children 10 and up only if they have experience, handbuilding is good for younger children. Adults who come in with a child must share a wheel, in this case the rate per child with a shared wheel is $10.
Please no drop-ins, you must call or email in advance to set up a time to come into the studio. There will be no instruction given for the per hour rate. For private lesson rates, see below.
