Studio Space Rentals

$25 per session, clay not included in fee

Sessions will be two hours in length and run three times a day on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. There will be three slots available for each session so we can keep everyone properly distanced within the space. This will be very similar to open studio with no instruction provided and a limit of three people per time slot. We ask that you bring as many of your own tools as possible. Prior clay studio experience is required and 18+ only please.  Email sign-ups only!  Contact Adam at [email protected]

Please Note:  For the first two weeks, we are limiting signups to once per week, per person so that we can make sure everyone interested has the option to participate!  We may change the policy if this proves to be a non-issue.  Thanks!
