if you’re here for open studio, you’re someone who has enough experience with clay to work independently.

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 ❤️

we’re working on a membership program that we hope to launch soon 🐊 for now we’re trying to keep the studio accessible and a good deal for everyone involved via day rates.

we charge $25/day or $160/ month —firing is included for work made in-house during studio hours.

FYI

we understand financial and societal burdens have locked many talented people out of the incredibly rewarding and therapeutic way of making art with clay.
we offer a sliding scale rates and also have plenty of opportunities for volunteers to help us with small tasks around the studio in exchange for studio time.
if this in any way applies to you, please let us know.
