need a place to work?

if you’re here for open studio, you’re someone who has enough experience with clay to work independently without instruction or guidance.

if you just need somewhere to fire, here’s our kiln share info

to makers still honing their skills: you are more than welcome here and we are happy to offer you our experience, but we’ll be honest with you if you need to take some more classes with us before flying solo ❤️

studio access

👉 “so like, when are you open?”
monday / thursday
2pm - 9pm
12pm - 6pm

daily rates

studio access fee — 25
+ 10lbs clay — 35

bundled weekly rates are available if you need more time.
  • monthly material fee — $50 required if you’re planning on using our glazes. you are welcome to bring your own mid-range (cone 6) commercial glazes.

there is no guessing here — if you are at all unsure, please check with us that you’re using the right materials for the temperature we fire to. you can learn more about our material requirements here.

all firing is included, within reason.

+ garden tables for working en plein air 🌬️

+ fresh fruit growing of some kind that you can pick yourself — usually starfruit, japoticaba, or avocados. and it’s organic :-)

we understand financial and societal burdens keep many talented people from enjoying the ways of clay.
if you are struggling to make the full cost of class or studio access, we have sliding scale rates and welcome volunteers eager to help us with small tasks around the studio in an equal exchange for studio time (mostly reclaiming tbh)
if this in any way applies to you, please let us know.
