Lesson Price Update

I only buy clay and glazes about once a year due to the quantities that I buy. Plus clay stores indefinitely, so it’s easier. I normally purchase 2000 lbs. or more. As I have been doing my research to see what new types of clay I want to add this year in addition to keeping all the current ones I have come to find out that the clay prices have increased a fair amount. the glaze prices have gone up even more. In the past I have bought Duncan glazes and received a 50% discount off of the retail prices if I purchased $1000 worth. Duncan has gone out of business and now I am paying retail for all my glazes. So basically my glaze prices have just doubled. So the increase is not going to make me more money, but it will help to cover some of the increase.

Starting immediately my lesson prices will be $50 per person no matter what the group size is. So basically I can no longer give discounts for the group size. My price for one person has always been $50 and that is not changing. I will just be removing the multiple person discount.

In addition I will now be putting up to 6 people in each one of my available dates. So if you group is not 6 people large you may have others in the room with you. I have limited days and I have been getting a lot of request for lessons.

I hope everyone can understand. Just like every other business, we too are going through the prices increases due to the current economy.

Thank you for your continued support, Bob

Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule 2022

The studio’s Holiday schedule this week. We will be open Wednesday and Saturday normal hours. We will be closed Thursday and Friday.

Wed 5-9 pm
Sat 10 am-6pm
Get here an hour before closing.

We will be honoring Small Business Saturday. On Saturday anything you buy will be 40% off the studio fee. So the price of the piece will be the regular price and then you will get 40% off of the studio fee. Items will not have to be finished on Saturday but you will have to have them completed in 90 days. Christmas Trees are excluded from this sale. They use way to much glaze.

New Timeline Policy

Due to the large amount of people that do not come back to pick up their items we have had to establish a timeline policy. This will be in effect for all new purchases. We will be notifying people of the policy that have items here already. I’m really sorry we have had to do this I have just run out of space.

The studio will be doing paint nights!

We will be starting to do two paint nights or more a month starting in February. Paint nights for February, February 5th for anyone wanting to paint as a gift for Valentines day. Then February 26th for anyone that wants to give as a give for Valentines day. They will both start at 7pm with a two hour expected duration, however I will stay here and help till everyone is finished. This will be an adult paint night so you can bring the drink of your choice. To make it fun I will provide an ice bath for those that want to put something into the ice bath and share. Or you can bring your own cooler and drink your own. No alcohol will be provided by the studio. Each date will have a limit of 10 spots. It is $40 per person. I can do a couple on one canvas for $60. For every two couple that will take up 3 spots. Space is limited. You will take your painting home with you the same day. If you are interested and want to attend, email me how many, which date, and a name and email. I will send you a square invoice. Once paid that will lock in your spot. There are no refunds but if an emergency happens I will allow you to postpone to a later paint night within 3 months. After 3 months money will be forfeited. First paid will take the 10 spots. Site will be updated when dates are full. Please follow on Facebook to see availability.

RAKU Firing

RAKU firing date is June 26th. I know some have been waiting 18 months for this day. The time has come!!! If you throw then come on in and get some pieces made. If not I will have about 30 pieces available for you to buy and glaze the colors you want and then fire. Pieces have to be glazed before firing day. The pics added are from past RAKU days. I will be experimenting with a new firing called Saggar.
