MudFire is an all day open studio, fully equipped to provide hobby, part-time, student, and professional potters and sculptors the opportunity to be outrageously creative.
Studio membership is for everyone: inquisitive beginners, off and on hobbyists, and experienced artists producing work for sale. Your membership is an all-access pass to all of the tools, equipment, glazes, firings, and even the occasional snack! With studio membership, you'll have your own personal storage areas on site to store your clay and work-in-progress between visits. Lessons are available to studio members anytime, without scheduling - two rangers are on duty each shift to load kilns, mix glazes, and assist with your ceramic education.
Clay is a wonderful medium through which to express yourself. From the very beginning, you can do no wrong - but you can spend a lifetime getting it just right. Come in, get dirty, make friends, meet your neighbors, make functional gifts or completely dysfunctional objects for yourself.
All equipment, glazes and firings are included in your membership. 2500 cubic inches per month, overages and soda firing at .02 per cubic inch. You cannot share your membership with another person, although you can have a guest one time per month. MudFire membership is about more than renting your workspace or about how often your schedule allows you to come in. You are sharing the overall costs that make the studio possible - from rent, power, materials and costs that keep everything running. If you have prior experience or an extenuating circumstance - talk to us - you might be a good fit for a student membership or a potential ranger or studio tech. We have a no kids under the age of 16 policy as most members are adults and are seriously focused during their work time here. We do offer dates, birthday parties, and summer camp for the kiddos!
We are currently on a waitlist for membership - Please call us for a tour and to be added to the list. Members cycle out from month and yearlong membership each month so new spaces pop up fairly quickly.
