Pottery tool detail

Craft Studio Membership gives you access to the Craft Studio’s space and tools to work on projects on your own time. Members may work in a studio anytime during our regular hours, unless there is a class in session in that room. Each area of the Craft Studio has slightly different rules for access and use. The chart below more accurately reflects what is available for members.

*Membership is not required to take a class or workshop. Five week classes include free memberships.

Membership Fees

Semester Memberships are valid from August 1st – December 31st (Fall) and January 2nd – May 31st (Spring). Month passes are good for 30 days from date of purchase. Day passes are only valid during the date of purchase.
