General membership costs $135 per month, and offers 24-hour access to the studio and its facilities, including work areas, wheels, studio tools and molds, glazing room and spray booth. A refundable security deposit equal to one month’s membership fees, paid at the time of joining the studio, will be held against any late charges, extra electricity, glaze runs or other fees not paid directly by the member, and will be returned when the member leaves the studio and returns his/her key.
If you are taking a class at Feet of Clay you will get a discounted rate of $85 per month!
Storage space for work in progress and clay is shared, and each member is given a small box to keep their tools and supplies, as well as an individual space for clay. Members are expected to clean up after themselves and to leave the area ready for others to use.
Firing is done by the studio managers or other experienced potters. Unlimited bisque and up to 3500 cubic inches of glaze firing is included in the monthly membership. Additional glaze firing is charged to the member at the rate of 1 cent per cubic inch.
A variety of clays can be purchased through the studio. Brown and white stoneware, buff clay and speckled clay are sold for $18, and porcelain is sold for $23 (25 pound bags). Members may purchase clay elsewhere as long as it fires to the same temperature as studio clay and glazes (cone 6). We fire to cone 6 in electric kilns and have over 30 glazes to choose from.
All members are invited to participate in our twice yearly show and sale. This is a great opportunity to show your work and sell it to the public. Space in the Show is subject to a lottery.
Requirements: The only requirement is that you have a basic knowledge of clay and glaze, meaning no instruction is required for you to work in the studio freely.
We are proud to be a dog friendly studio.
