Open Studio is offered to those with previous ceramic experience and recommended for those who don't need hands-on instruction and feel confident working independently. If you have not been to our Open Studio before you must be pre-approved prior to registering by calling or emailing

We will be following the social distancing COVID protocol.  All clay open studio participants will need to sign a COVID waiver, get a temperature check upon entrance to the building, and wear masks.
