Day Use

NOTE: No day use, glazing or firing-drop-offs on May 29, Memorial Day, as there will be no staff on duty.

If you are interested in a short-term project or cannot come into the studio on a regular basis, you might be interested in our Day Pass or 5-Day Pass (aka Take 5) programs. Note the day-use hours below.

Day Pass: $25

5-Day Pass: $100 (The days do not need to be consecutive.)

Instruction: The day use program assumes you basically know what you're doing with clay and are just looking for a great place to do it -- there is no instruction provided aside from studio protocols. We do have classes but they're all 8 weeks.

Clay: We stock about 10 kinds of high fire clay and it's priced about $15 per 25 lb. bag, with porcelain being a bit more. You're welcome to bring in your own clay, but please clear it with staff first -- we need to make sure it's handled appropriately with respect to its firing temperature, both in terms of the kilns it may go into and cleanup/recycling/disposal.

Firing: There's a $20 minimum for firing and we do low, mid, and high fire. We charge by volume and pricing is at the contract firing rate.
