Instructional Open Studio is open to students that have taken the Introduction to Pottery and with beginner to advanced pottery knowledge. During these hours students may come in and work, this is not a led class, but more of a working studio where questions can be addressed to instructors and peers. We hope to create an environment where students can experiment and get creative while having a community of support! Click here for more information.
