The ceramics studio was fully renovated in 2019! Located on the lower level of the main building, the bright space with large windows now has custom-made tables with locking caster wheels and new adjustable stools. There are new glaze bins, shelving units, a sink area, and clay capture system. The electrical system in the studio has been upgraded with new pull-down outlets for the pottery wheels and central table plus additional lighting throughout the studio. There is also better lighting and upgraded electricity for the outdoor kiln deck which includes a raku kiln, Bailey gas kiln, and pit firing area. Between the studio and the kilns is a patio with tables for staging work when loading/unloading.
COVID-19 UPDATE: This spacious studio will have a maximum of 5 students. New plexiglass shields separate the wheels and students will use the same wheel for the duration of the workshop. Six foot squares are taped around shared equipment. Students are encouraged to bring their own gloves, apron, small tools, writing utensil, etc to reduce sharing. Anti-bacterial wipes will be provided for cleaning larger equipment such as the slab roller or the kilns.

Check back near the end of July for pictures of the COVID-safe studio on this page.
