ThePottery is a welcoming outdoor studio where adults can “play” with clay. Our relaxing environment encourages creative freedom; inspiration is received by being with others who love what they are doing. You can explore color, shape, texture, and design working in clay. Functional or decorative, two dimensional or sculptural, colorful or natural, the work you produce is one of a kind, uniquely yours. Let go of your worries. Make something with your hands "come feel the mud."
The Pottery Open Studio starts in the fall till end of the spring.This year with some adjustments to our memberships to comply with COVID safety rules. Fortunately, our studio is completely outdoors with room enough for social distancing. The studio will be limited to use by 4 people at a time and we ask people to wear masks. We now have 2 levels of memberships with expanded hours so more people can work and enjoy the studio space.
Level 1: Open Studio Membership
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays from 10 am - 2 pm.
Studio is recommended for those who are familiar with the ceramic
process, don't need hands-on instruction, and feel confident working
independently. An Open Studio monitor will be present to assist with
orientation to the studio.
Level 2: Open Studio Membership
$100/month for unlimited use.
Level 2 grants you access every day during daylight hours as long as space is available (4 people maximum). This
provides an independent and unsupervised working environment to those
who have taken classes and/or have experience working in our studio.

CLASSES AND UPCOMING EVENTS
We are working on our new season programming. Stay tuned!
HOW TO GET THERE
All workshops will be held at the Pottery Studio, under the big blue canopy at the
Be aware our studio is outside,
with limited shade and exposure to the elements. If the weather
conditions are extreme, we will have to adjust the schedule.
THE SUMMER MONTHS AHEAD
We are an outdoor studio which is wonderful to work at on a beautiful day in Borrego Springs. But, when it gets hot, working there becomes challenging. The studio will remain accessible to members though. Clay can be purchased, the slab roller and extruder used, and limited firings will continue when we have cooler nights.
WHEELS FOR RENT
The pottery studio has several Shimpo VL Lite wheels available to rent for $75/month during the very hot summer months. At 50lb each, they are relatively easy to move.
