Scheduling Open Studio Time
  • In addition to your class, you also have access to the studio when classes are not happening. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you must reserve open studio time in advance using our scheduling system.
  • The system will only show you times that are available. Each reservation is 1.5 hours long, but if you want to stay longer, you can book sessions back to back.
  • Reservations cannot be made more than 7 days in advance and less than 1 hour in advance.
  • You can book up to 10 reservations in a week.
  • If you only need to come to the studio to check on work (pick up glazed work, uncover greenware, etc.) please use the "checking-in" link to book a 15 minute reservation.
  • All of these links can be found on our website: https://www.clayhousebrooklyn.com/members-only-and-student-scheduling/
Missing a Reservation
  • If you cannot attend your reservation, please cancel your appointment.
  • If you don't show for your appointment, you are keeping someone else from using that time slot.
Staying Past Reservation Time
  • You should be out the front door (on the street) at your end time. Not cleaning, not dealing with pottery/firing fees, not collecting your personal items. This is a crowding/safety issue.
  • You will receive ONE warning for staying past your reservation end time.
  • A second infraction will result in the termination of your studio time privileges.
  • This is not something we want to do, but we have a schedule for a reason. Staying late is not only a COVID issue, it also causes problems for the person scheduled after you and creates more work for our staff.
  • We have added clocks to both walls in the back and encourage you to set a timer on your phone to be sure you clean up and leave on time.
We no longer provide outside firings or walk in services for the ClayHouse Brooklyn studio.
 
Additional Fees
Firing fees will be additional at $.06 per cubic inch.  Note: You will be able to pay for firing fees at our kiosk in the studio. Students will need to provide their own tools or purchase a tool kit for $18 at our studio.
