The Studio Space Rental is for those who already have some or a lot of knowledge of clay and simply need a place to work.
Cost: $65 a month
*3 hrs twice a week of wheel use or studio time, which can be used for hand building or glazing.
*Full access to the studio equipment and studio hand tools.
*A private shelf where to keep your work and tools, if you desire not to have to take your tools home.
*10% discount on workshops or classes you might be interested in taking.
*10% discount on clay, commercial glazes, and tool purchases made through the studio, before sales tax.
Firings are not included in the price, but you will get an amazing discount on the cost of firing.... $0.01 per cubic inch for either bisque firing or glaze firing. If you want to use our studio glazes, then the cost of glaze firing will be $.03.
In other words... if you have a box you need fired and the box measures 4" H x 4" L x 4" W, you multiply that by $0.01 for the bisque and then multiply it again by the glaze firing cost to include studio glazes by $.03. You add the two amounts and that is what the cost will be for that piece to be completely fired. Of course, if you have your own glazes, then you would multiply the glaze firing by $0.01.
Here is a cost example using the studio glazes:
4"x4"x4" = 64 cu. in. x $0.01 = $0.64 for bisque firing
4"x4"x4" = 64 cu. in. x $0.03 = $1.92 for our glazes and glaze firing
Total cost of firing = $2.56 (plus sales tax, unless you have a sales tax number on file)
So let's say you made a box with those dimensions and you want to be able to sell it... the cost of firing the box will give you a chance to set a sale price and make a profit, with no problems.
NOTE: Use of the studio is subject to availability, you must schedule in advance when you are coming in, so it doesn't interfere with scheduled classes. At this moment we will only be allowing one type of clay in the studio at all times. This is to minimize the chances of contamination when recycling clay. Please be aware, we only use a mid-range stoneware clay.
