Collection: Open Studio & Membership Reservations

Here at The Clay Warehouse, we work really hard to offer you the best studio experience as possible. We offer studio time and memberships for those who are looking to expand their skill set, engage with the community, and to relax from daily life. Our studio is welcoming to all skill levels, whether you wheel throw, hand build, or sculpt! We strive for a welcoming and non-judgemental environment. We are always willing to lend a hand, give a hug, or offer a shoulder to cry on. To be frank, we want you here, in our studio, making work that makes your soul happy!

We welcome all students to book open studio time during or after your beginner course!

Required Skills

Booking studio time is reserved for folks who have prior pottery experience. Pottery experience is defined as a basic understanding of all the different steps and stages that clay goes through as well as a thorough understanding of how to glaze. This could be achieved by previously taking a beginner course with us or from another studio within the last 1-2 years. You must be able to work independently. There are techs always floating around that are willing to share some knowledge, but by no means should they be giving you a free one-on-one course. If you are unsure about your skills, give us a call and we can figure it out together :)
