Open Lab Hours


Open Lab times are subject to periodic closure for special events and/or studio functions.

Open Lab is only available to students enrolled in our regular, 8-week adult classes.


Space is limited!

Practice is key, so students in regular adult classes are encouraged to take advantage of open lab hours as often as possible! Most adult students work full-time, so evening classes and weekend open lab hours are the only opportunities to practice. There are over 35 hours of open lab each week (significantly more than other community studios), but weekend hours are the busiest times. Take a peek at the calendar to see the Lab’s very full schedule.

With just one studio, open lab must fit between classes. But the good news is - we’re expanding! In a few years, there will be a second facility to offer MORE ceramics programs (plus classes in other studio art forms). Help us make this dream a reality - learn more at SAB Expansion
