Membership includes a storage shelf, use of pottery facilities, equipment, glaze materials, and firing for projects created in the studio.

We hope to be able to open the pottery studio in the Fall. We will reach out to all past pottery studio members and update this page with further details as soon as we can reopen the studio safely.
