Open Studio Policies:
BCW does not supply clay for open studio participants. Clay may be purchased at $10 per 22lbs bag. Please do not bring clay you purchased elsewhere to our studio without prior permission from the studio manager.
BCW has community tools available for your use during open studio. If you prefer using your own tools BCW has tool kits available for sale at $15 per kit.
During open studio participants have access to wheels, work tables, wedging boars, glaze room, slab roller, and communal tools. All participants are responsible for cleaning all tools they used and all areas they worked in. Our motto is: “Leave it cleaner than you found it! “
BCW provides shelf space for open studio participants. Work and clay left on shelves unattended for more than 2 months will get disposed of, recycled, or claimed by BCW.
BCW is a community studio. Please be mindful of others around you. The studio space and communal tools are for all to share.
Music: You may listen to music during open studio as long as other participants are OK with it. Please be sure to ask all others present if they mind.
