BYOB. purchase studio clay here or bring your own cone 6 clay.

fyi, this is geared to potters who need a place to make, fire, and finish work. we are just here with the space and ability to share an accessible working zone for those who need it semi-regularly.

we are not a production studio.

OPEN LEVEL

open to those who have taken a pottery course in the past. you can request a refresher class at any time.

guided studio time

we’re here to help you out if you need assistance to a reasonable degree.

open studio is especially helpful for new potters who have a grasp on concept but need help with execution. practice practice practice 🗝

if we feel like we’re entering class territory, we’ll let you know. boundaries baby!

we have clay available for purchase @ $25 per bag

we can store clay and in-progress pots, but we ask you bring your tools and working materials (bottled glazes etc) with you instead of storing them with us here.

we’ll be able to hold finished work for a short amount of time but be ready to take things home with you asap once they have been fired.

what to expect when you get here

we operate outside in a covered, screened area. that said, nature is all around us. please expect: flora, fauna, and general #florida phenomena. long pants and closed toed shoes are highly recommended. 

how to find the studio

we’re located in a house in hollywood, fl, just southwest of downtown on monroe street and 24th avenue.

for address details and how exactly to find us, contact the studio at 954-408-2046 for more info.

sliding scale + exchange options

dirty lizard studio is by and for ceramic artists, and we try to keep it accessible. please talk to us if you want to get back in the clay studio but are unable to swing the full cost. there’s always work to do here, and we would love the help. if you’d like to contribute hours in exchange for studio access, all exchanges will be equitable, and we will never exploit or take advantage of your kindness. we expect the same from you.
