Class Description: Open studio time is unstructured time for students with basic skills to practice independently to enhance their abilities.
Students currently taking ceramics classes at Arbutus may work on class projects and practice independently. Instruction is not included in open studio time though a ceramics instructor will be on hand to answer questions. It includes use of the ceramic studio, tools, and equipment. Students currently enrolled in classes do not need to pay additional fees for clay, glaze and firings to participate in the open studio.
Participants not enrolled in a class are also welcome to register for open studio time as space allows, although works will be subject to additional clay and firing fees. Participants are required to have basic pottery or hand building skill level and should be able to use the studio to work independently.
Please note:

  • We cannot accommodate production potters.
  • Participants must use clay provided by Arbutus Folk School.
  • Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a registered adult.
  • There are three wheels in our studio: wheel throwing is available on a first-come, first-served basis during open studio.
