Ceramics Open Studio is for the experienced and self-directed ceramicist interested in working in a shared space. Studios include twelve pottery wheels, hand building workstations, glazes, shared sink, and a variety of molds. Firing and glazes are included in the studio fee. Clay can be purchased at the school store. Participants must have technical proficiency, be capable of working independently and adhere to the studio firing schedule.
