Ceramics

Participating in ceramics studio:

Beginners have classes with a direct, hands-on learning experience, aimed at making you comfortable and inspired to use the studio independently, outside of class time, and enjoy work-playing with clay.

Experienced ceramicists, working independent of class times, will find this space well equipped and user-friendly. You can use the studio on a per week basis ( Tuesday – Saturday), with a low studio fee and firing charges.

Kids Ceramics, is on Saturday mornings for 2 hours.  Kids under 9 must have an adult attending to help them during class time.  Projects vary and kids can choose a project to make. Slip is used for color by the student, and we apply clear glaze to have the project ready for pick up 2 weeks after class day.

Open Studio  is for makers who have experience and can work safely and independantly can register for Open Studio.  Open Studio is also available to students in multi-week classes.  Tuesday – Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm and 5 pm – 9 pm with prior arrangement.

There are staff members who can give quick help and advice, during Open Studio, when you are at a loss, stuck, or spinning your wheels. However , they are not available for demonstrations or involved consultation.

WHAT YOUR REGISTRATION IN CLASSES AND OPEN STUDIO GIVES YOU :

Our goal is to assist you in exploring the possibilities of ceramics because creating with clay enlivens the Mind and energizes the Spirit.  We have a passion for studio endeavors and want to share it with you. We do that by providing tools and space, materials, instruction, supportive environment, and opportunities to pursue your maker goals. The energy you bring into the studio is just as important as what we might be able to provide to you. We look forward to having you work with us in the studio.

ACCESS

Besides classes and workshops, there is opportunity for Open Studio registration, which runs Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm and evening hours with prior arrangement.  Available to registered students in multi-week classes and Open Studio ceramicists.
