Become a Studio Member!
MudFire studio membership is for everyone...inquisitive beginners, off and on hobbyists, and experienced artists. Your membership is an all-access pass to all of the tools, equipment, glazes, firings, and even the occasional snack!
Lessons are available to studio members anytime, without scheduling. Just come on in and play dirty!
Membership packages are priced very reasonably and are economical compared to typical studio and class fees. We offer annual and monthly memberships to suit your needs.
If you are interested in giving MudFire a try, we offer two options. First, consider a $99 trial month of studio membership. This will give you plenty of time to experiment with wheel and handbuilding, to test different glazes, and develop basic skills. Making pottery is not an instant gratification thing, it's a weeks-long process even for one piece.
Another option is to set up a group event with friends.
We limit the number of studio members to keep things manageable and comfortable. If you know in advance you'll want to get started, it's a good idea to call ahead in case there is currently a wait list.
Give MudFire a try for just $99 for your first month, after that our normal monthly rate of $149 applies with no long term committment. Some other options...
Annual - $129/month - one year contract w/ monthly payments.
Prepay Year - $119/month - pay up front, save $360!
Just One Month - $169 - one and done!
Visit our Membership Options page to get started. Of course you can also stop by or call 404-377-8033 or email with any questions! Just like renting a car, all MudFire memberships require a signed agreement with a credit card on file or cash deposit.
Why a Whole Month?
MudFire offers a monthly membership instead of single session rates because every piece you make will go through several steps and take weeks to complete. With studio membership, you'll have your own personal storage areas onsite to store your clay and work-in-progress between visits.
Private lessons at an artist studio normally cost $40-$60 per hour. At MudFire, you can come any time you like, several times a week, without worrying about scheduling. If you only make it in once a week for just three hours of lessons or studio use, your cost per hour at the monthly rate is a little over $12 an hour. A bargain! Of course, if you use the studio several times a week, we're charging you less than minimum wage. That's a deal so good it might be illegal!
