Independent  Studio. Saturdays-3:00-6:00pm
Available for those registered in the 3 month session.

We know that a three hour class once a week is sometimes not enough time to get your creative clay ideas completed.  The studio is open on Saturday afternoons for people who are trying to complete a project or want to practice throwing skills.  You must have permission from us. We need to know that you are independent and considerate enough to work without supervision. 

Please follow these rules:

1. The cost to use the independent studio is $5 per day.  This pays for the utilities (water, electricity, etc.), recycling of clay, and general maintenance.  Imagine having a studio in a garage and walking into it and having all the clay ready to use, the wheel clean, tools, and someone is going to clean and mop the place after you leave!  That's worth $5 bucks.

2. You are on your own.  The teachers are not being paid at this time. We assume you are self-directed at this stage and able to follow the studio rules.

3.  The Glaze Room is closed during independent studio.  Glazing is only allowed during class when glaze evaporation is monitored.

4. If you want to save the pieces you have made during Saturday studio you must wrap them yourself.  This means you may have to unwrap your piece during class time to let it continue drying.  Again, be self-reliant. The teachers come in on Sunday morning to wrap the Saturday morning classes pots, but will not return Sunday evening to wrap open studio work.  You will also be charged an extra fee if your work for the month exceeds the allotted 12"x12"x12" space.

5. You must recycle the clay scraps, change the water, and leave the studio clean and organized.  

6. The last person out must turn off the lights, AC, and lock the front door.

Please note that the studio may occasionally (but rarely) be closed on Saturday afternoon if a special event has been reserved.
