Pottery Open Studio
Pottery Open Studio is for current pottery Students and Access pass holders.
Open studio is the perfect opportunity to practice what you’ve learned in class as well as explore new pottery ideas.
Studio assistants will supervise each open studio but will not provide any instruction.
There are 2 time slots
11am - 1:30pm and 1:30pm - 4pm
Only sign up for 1 time slot per weekend. If you would like to sign up for more, check the availability the day before or day of. Most of the time there are slots open but we want to make sure everyone can attend at least once each weekend.
Do’s and Don’ts
-If you need to purchase a second bag of clay, please text Delores (252) 621-0028 your name before taking a bag and an invoice will be sent to you. Additional bags of clay are $30 each and include all firing costs. You can also do this ahead of time.
-Open studio is for practicing and exploring new ideas. It does not come with instruction.
-Please start your clean up 10 - 15 minutes before the end of your time.
-Remember to wipe down your work area, put your bag of clay and tools away and cover your pieces before leaving. Cleaning is very important for the safety of the studio. Use a damp sponge to clean the floor around your wheel before you leave.
-Partially covering in progress pieces will result in bone dry pieces that are often unworkable. Double up on plastic if you need to to keep pieces soft until you return.
-Do Not leave towels or tools in the sink. Towels are not always provided.
-Place thick or large chunks of scrap clay in the clay recycle bins. Pouring thick throwing slip or scraps down the sink will result in clogging and flooding of our clay trap system.
