Ah Haa School for the Arts

  • CERAMICS OPEN STUDIO | Throwing, Trimming & Glazing



Our ceramics studio is part of Ah Haa’s commitment to create opportunities for access to hands-on arts practices for those who want to create. Ceramic artists and advanced adult students are welcome to participate in Ah Haa’s Open Studio program for $100 per month. The membership fee includes access to the studio equipped with twelve pottery wheels and accompanying handbuilding tables, a slab roller, extruder, three electric pottery kilns, and a glazing kitchen. All materials including clay, glazes, and firing fees are not included in the membership fee and may be purchased from Ah Haa. Students may access the ceramics studio during the following times*:

Mondays 9AM-9PM

Tuesdays 9AM-9PM

Wednesdays 9AM-9PM

Thursdays 9AM-9PM

Fridays 9AM-9PM

Saturdays 10AM-6PM


*Please note that adult and youth students enrolled in our traditional classes have priority over the main classroom space during scheduled class times. Open Studio members may work in the glazing kitchen during scheduled class times, which includes a handbuilding table and two wheels.

Also included in your monthly fee is a dedicated storage shelf and shared space in a lockable cabinet. Open Studio spaces are available first come, first served, and a waitlist will be established once we’ve hit full capacity. Membership fees are due the Monday before the first day of each month. Failure to pay on time will result in the immediate loss of your membership and movement to the bottom of the waiting list.

All Open Studio members are required to have completed a 4-week ceramics class at Ah Haa or similar ceramics program. Open Studio memberships are approved on a case-by-case basis by the Ceramics Program Manager. Please reach out to tara@ahhaa.org if you have any questions or would like to know more details about this program.

The policies stated above are effective from October 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021. A new membership format will be introduced on January 1, 2022.
