Member Benefits:

Costs:

Membership: There is a one-time nonrefundable membership fee of $200 ($300 for a family of 2) which may be paid in two installments. The first installment is due at time of joining as a probationary member; the second installment is due in no later than three months from joining.

Dues: Monthly dues are $27, $40 or $60, dependent upon the type of membership selected.

Additional Fees

All bisque and glaze firing costs are extra. Firing fees are communicated to the membership and will vary slightly depending upon the cost of gas or electricity. The use of guild glazes is included in the firing charges; therefore items glazed at the guild must be fired at the guild.

Additional storage shelves are available for a small monthly fee.

Members may display pictures of their work on the Guild Website for approximately $25 to $30
(see example member's page)

Membership Information

Incoming members are expected to be able to work independently and are probationary for 6 months. All members are expected to help to maintain a clean studio and contribute time and labor toward the functioning of the Guild. The studio is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Throwing wheels may not be available during class sessions. Each member will have a secure door code.

There is a minimum of two sales a year (spring and fall) in which members are encouraged to participate. The sales also serve as a fund raiser for the Guild, thus a small percentage of the sales is retained for operational expenses. Two studio cleanup days per year are scheduled prior to the shows, and members are expected to participate. Members are also strongly encouraged to to participate on a committee, or serve as a committee chairman, after the first year.

Each new member is expected to read the bylaws and rules & regulations for more detailed information.
