Laura Triplett

Find inspiration and resources in the company of other artists with our open studio and approved access programs.

Open studios do not include instruction. They are monitored sessions, offered on a pay-as-you go basis. Please review the description for each type of studio below and see the updated calendar at the bottom of the page.


Experienced potters may throw or hand-build at their own pace in a communal studio environment.

No instruction will be given. In order to maintain a productive and safe studio, interested potters must meet the requirements listed in the handbook and be approved by the Pottery Supervisor.

Clay and glazes are sold exclusively through the studio. Outside materials are prohibited. Please note that our kiln is not for rent. We will not fire anything that did not originate in our studio.

Be aware that we currently have a waitlist for Approved Access Pottery. In order to join the waitlist, please contact the office!

Please see the AAP Handbook for approval requirements, studio policies, and fee schedule.
