ATTENTION: MEMBERSHIP IS CURRENTLY FULL, BUT AS SPACE OPENS UP THOSE ON THE LIST ARE CONTACTED. PLEASE EMAIL INFO@FEETOFCLAYPOTTERY TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST. MANY THANKS!
Membership at Feet of Clay is offered at a variety of levels. All members are required to do some work for the studio (i.e. help at the semi-annual clean-a-thons) and everyone is welcome to participate in our twice-yearly shows and sales. In order to become a member please email the studio to set up an appointment. Please keep in mind membership is subject to available space. We currently have a waiting list for membership.
General membership costs $135 per month, and offers 24-hour access to the studio and its facilities, including work areas, wheels, studio tools and molds, glazing room and spray booth. A refundable security deposit equal to one month’s membership fees, paid at the time of joining the studio, will be held against any late charges, extra electricity, glaze runs or other fees not paid directly by the member, and will be returned when the member leaves the studio and returns his/her key.
If you are taking a class at Feet of Clay you will get a discounted rate of $85 per month!
Storage space for work in progress and clay is shared, and each member is given a small box to keep their tools and supplies, as well as an individual space for clay. Members are expected to clean up after themselves and to leave the area ready for others to use.
Firing is done by the studio managers or other experienced potters. Unlimited bisque and up to 3500 cubic inches of glaze firing is included in the monthly membership. Additional glaze firing is charged to the member at the rate of 1 cent per cubic inch.
A variety of clays can be purchased through the studio. Brown and white stoneware, buff clay and speckled clay are sold for $18, and porcelain is sold for $23 (25 pound bags). Members may purchase clay elsewhere as long as it fires to the same temperature as studio clay and glazes (cone 6). We fire to cone 6 in electric kilns and have over 30 glazes to choose from.
All members are invited to participate in our twice yearly show and sale. This is a great opportunity to show your work and sell it to the public. Space in the Show is subject to a lottery.
If you would like to become a member, please email email@example.com to make an appointment for a studio orientation. Please allow up to 2 business days for a response. All new members need an orientation and will pay in person rather than online.
Requirements: The only requirement is that you have a basic knowledge of clay and glaze, meaning no instruction is required for you to work in the studio freely.
We are proud to be a dog friendly studio.
Semi-Private Membership costs $145 per month plus a one-time, non-refundable joining fee equal to one month’s membership dues, and in addition to everything available to the general member, provides a personal shelving unit for storage of your own work and tools. Semi-private members are responsible for their own firing, and will be trained by FOC staff on the use and firing of our kilns. Monthly firing charges will depend on actual kiln space used. Semi-Private members are required to perform 3 hours of work per month, to be assigned by the management according to studio need.
Private Studio Space
Finally, we offer a small number of private rental spaces whose cost depends on the square footage of the space. Private members fire their own work and perform 3 hours of work for the studio each month.
Online payment is for existing members only, not for new members. Pay here if you are a current member of Feet of Clay. If you wish to re-join, please email Jenn to check for available space.
When purchasing gift certificates keep in mind membership is subject to available space. Feet of Clay has approximately a 6 month waiting time for membership, and contacts those on the list as space becomes available.
When purchasing a gift certificate from Feet of Clay, we will mail your gift certificate to you within 24 hours of receipt, and will send a confirmation email to confirm the shipping address.
You can use your gift certificate towards anything we sell at Feet of Clay. Whether it is for studio space, classes, or shopping at our twice-yearly Show and Sale..
