Discover Pottery Capital's Open Studio Hours and More

Open Studio hours are intended for those who have prior experience with clay, either hand building or on the wheel. We will assist you with the studio and equipment and to answer questions you may have but are not there to give specific instruction. If you are interested in learning more about ceramics and hands on instruction, we recommend taking one of our classes.

What is Open Studio?

Open studio hours are designated times when students or someone with clay experience can access the studio to work on projects or practice using the wheel/hand build. This is for someone who does not want to commit for membership.

During open studio hours, you can:

  • Hone your pottery skills on the pottery wheel

  • Use wheels, handbuilding tools, wheel-throwing tools and other resources (slab roller, tile cutters, glazes, slab and hump molds) for their artistic endeavours

  • Glaze your pottery pieces with underglazes and dipping glazes

  • Engage with a community of aspiring and established potters and talk about all things pottery
