Cost: $25 per evening, payable in cash on the evening
On most Tuesday evenings, we host Potters’ Night as a flexible creative space for ceramists and other artists who are keen to learn more about throwing or hand-building clay or who seek studio time for a project. Participants have some familiarity with pottery and are people who enjoy handicraft and sharing in community with other makers. A potter may come once, occasionally or regularly, attending for the full evening or just a part.
• Any interested potter should sign-up for the evening in advance, either at the studio’s white board for the month or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org not later than the Sunday evening prior to the Tuesday.
• Potters should arrive not later than 6:45pm in a given evening; 7:40-8:00pm will be a time for winding up work and studio clean-up.
• A host potter for the evening will be on hand to help guide and support participants. Together we will aim to create an environment of co-learning, though these evenings are not intended as formal private instruction.
• The studio’s two wheels will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If more than two persons are interested in throwing in a given evening, then wheel time will be limited to a maximum of 60 minutes per person.
• Tuesday potters will have access to the studio’s supply of reclaimed clay in reasonable quantities, mainly for hand-building or prototypes. Individuals may also purchase and store 22lb blocks of fresh clay from the studio’s stock of Cone 5/6 stoneware and porcelains. Access to studio glazes and kiln firing is provided at a charge per completed piece of $2 (small); $4 (medium) and $6 (large).
• Personal items, greenware, bisque-fired or glazed pieces that are left at the studio idle or uncollected for more than 60 days may be discarded.
