Course Policies

Course Information


Each regular-course session is composed of 8-weeks, with 3-hours of instruction per week. Additionally, students have access to open-studio hours during their 8-week course session.


The cost of each 8-week class includes instruction, access to equipment, use of studio glazes, and firing space (allotted firing space varies between classes. See course details below). Students will need to provide their own clay and tools (we sell both). Additional firing space is available for a fee.



Wheel Classes

Up to 20lbs of class work (10lbs of bisque firing & 10lbs of glaze firing)


Handbuilding Classes

Up to 30lbs of class work (15lbs of bisque firing & 15lbs of glaze firing)


Sculpture Classes

Up to 3 projects per class.


All personal belongings should be taken home on the last day of class. Finished work should be picked up within 2-weeks of firing.

A full refund will be issued if enrollment is cancelled 1-week before the start of the workshop or class.

It is not possible to provide make-ups of missed-classes. However, all regular-session students are welcome to use the studio during open-studio hours. 




Basic safety procedures will be explained at the beginning of each course and must be strictly adhered to. Any further questions about procedure or use of equipment may be addressed to any instructor or staff member.


All regular session courses are designed for adults. Teens may be accepted into the program on a case-by-case basis, provided they are mature and responsible enough to abide by all safety standards. Please contact the studio before enrolling any persons under the age of 18.




Open-studio hours coincide with Red Ox Clay Studio's regular operating hours. Open-studio hours will occasionally be cancelled for workshops and special events, during which times advanced notice will be given. Hours may change as courses are added or removed from the schedule. 


Studio members have unlimited access to the studio, regardless of operating hours. *Occasionally the studio will be closed for workshops or special events, during which times the members may use the studio before and/or after the hours of the event, but not during.
