Spring 2022 Open Studio Access Pass is Open for Registration!

Register Here

Open Studio Access Pass is for more experienced clay artists who need access to equipment, glazes, and firings.


It is a great opportunity to work independently and explore your projects at your own pace.
The access pass can also be purchased through the museum if you signed up for an eight week course with Howard College, and would like additional studio time to make your work outside of class.


There is only a monitor for this course rather than an instructor, and no demonstrations will be given, so it is not recommended for beginners in clay. All clay must be purchased from the studio. Cost includes access during open studio hours, firings, and glazes.
