Entry to studio

Hooray!! And thank you!!

On January 18, after a year of delays, our Georgetown studio officially opens! We love so many things about this new, larger space – high ceilings, lots of windows, near the C&O Canal and great restaurants. The second floor allows us to add hand-building to our wheel-throwing classes as well as resident and associate workspaces.

We are so grateful for the generous support to our GoFund Me campaign that has made this possible. While it may be many months before the studio fully recovers financially from this long, painful ordeal, we are headed in the right direction. But we still need a push to the finish line. Please contribute if you can.

For regular updates, follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Click here for details on getting to the studio.
