Can my children use the space with me?
We love seeing families create together! Eastside Pottery was created as a space for adults to create independently, so everyone must be at least 18 years old. If you would like to have your children work with you, you can reserve time to visit Redmond Art Works. Your hourly open studio fee can be waived in place of your EP membership usage. You will just pay the fees for your child’s projects.
How many pieces can I fire per month?
To ensure there is always kiln room for all members working in the studio , pieces being fired should not exceed 30 pieces in a month for Mainstay members & 20 pieces for Enthusiast members. Members are expected to pay kiln fees for anything made or glazed outside of the studio. Please note, the EP space was not created for full time working artists, if you are a full time artist please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
Where do I store my clay and tools?
We have lockers for rent at $10 per month. This rental fee will be added monthly to your membership fee. Clay can not be left on shelves or studio floors, shelving is reserved for in process work only.
