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."


Open Studio

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.
$60 for 8 days of use.

Open 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.

• Clay and firings are available for an additional fee.
• Participants must be 18 years or older.
