Why Choose Open Studio?

Open studio gives anyone with a basic knowledge of ceramics the ability to practice their craft as and when they choose. 

For professionals, open studio membership is far more cost effective that setting up a home studio, where the cost of rent and equipment is high. For hobbyists, open studio allows the flexibility to work on a project, or multiple projects, on your own time, without having to wait for another class.

Open studio fees start at $190 per month and include the cost of firing your work*, glazes, and use of the class tools — all you need to buy is clay! You can join open studio at anytime with a minimum commitment of one month.
