Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Can I book The Clay Studio for a private event?
Yes. The Clay Studio is occasionally available to rent for birthday parties and special occasions for $95 per hour. If you wish to paint pottery, a per item/per-person fee is also applied.
- Can I learn to make my own pottery?
Yes. Our resident Clay Artist offers instruction in clay hand building and wheel throwing. Sessions are one hour long and you will learn several techniques. Call 251-981-ARTS (2787) for more details.
- Can I paint already finished pieces of pottery?
Yes. We offer Pick-n-Paint for $35 and up, per item. Call for a reservation at 251-981-ARTS (2787).
- How long does a piece of pottery take to complete?
If you paint an already finished piece, you may retrieve your item within 24 to 48 hours.
If you sculpt your own piece, it will take between 1 to 3 days to dry, then it takes 1 to 2 days to fire it in the kiln; you can return to glaze your piece at this point. It is then fired in the kiln for a second time (which also takes 1 to 2 days). You may pick up the finished product after approximately 7 to 10 business days from your start date. We can also ship your pieces to you.
- When is the Clay Studio open?
The Clay Studio is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
