The Independent Study Program is a way for students and artists to sign up to use the clay studio while not enrolled in a class. Built as a monthly membership, artists gain access to the Independent classroom, as well as the main studio any time a class is not in session. The Umbrella is committed to keeping one of these two work spaces regularly open for independent use. Schedules are emailed to registered members monthly.

  • Personal storage space
  • Access to equipment including pottery wheels, slab roller, extruder, spray booth, grinder and hand tools
  • Wide selection of clay, glazes, and firing atmospheres
  • Quick firing turnarounds
  • Professional technicians to load and fire kilns
  • Opportunities to show your work, including our Earth Day Exhibit and Winter Market
