Warm Studio Open Lab

Open Studio time for artist co-working

Periodically we open our studio for former students and experienced kiln workers to use our equipment to make art. We don't provide instruction during that time but we are there to help you use the equipment and will probably be making our own art right beside you. Come join us.
