Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is the pottery studio closed from October-April? (or only open May-September?)
A: There are a couple of reasons the pottery studio is seasonal. The studio is partly open-air and partly un-insulated. And Annie, the potter, teaches elementary art full time during the school year (read as Total Exhaustion!).
Q: Can I attend open studio if I took a clay class in college (5-40 years ago)?
Q: Can I attend open studio to make pottery as a production potter?
Q: What should I bring with me to the studio?
Q: Do you have a storm cellar in case of storms?
Q: Can I buy clay from you, make items at home and rent kiln space to have it fired?
Q: Can I bring adult beverages to the studio?
Q: Do you have a restroom?
Q: What do I need to do to help clean up at the end of the session?
A: Each potter cleans and puts away the tools, plastic, textures, etc. used. Wheels are wiped down or clay pans taken off and sprayed out and replaced for the next group. We usually take turns sweeping. Clean up is from 8:30-8:45 after work time is over.
