Membership Info + Waitlist

Hello Clay Peeps!

 

Thank you for your interest and wanting to be part of our clay fam! Before you go on, please read our Studio Rules & Etiquette guidelines thoroughly if you haven't already. We want to make sure our studio is the right one for you, and vice versa. =) Without further ado, here is what a WHC Membership entails and, of course, the perks!

What we expect from our Members:

- You must have taken a 6-week course at Wheelhouse at the very least. This way, you will be familiar with our studio functions, etiquette and ways of consideration.

- You can work INDEPENDENTLY and autonomously. You must know the prominent processes of how clay turns into ceramic and can work without very much guidance-- but we are always here if you have any questions about studio functions! If you think you still need to familiarize yourself with these steps, we suggest you join another class before becoming a member to get to know clay and proper community studio etiquette.

- You know the ins and outs of our community studio functions and will adhere to all the rules and guidelines, which you can read about here: Studio Rules & Hours.

- You will respect our community space with MINDFULNESS AND CLEANLINESS, two very vital parts of our practice and studio space.

- You will keep our studio space safe for everyone who enters here, even for those who might have different views and perspectives than you. Of course, we expect the same from them in return.

- Respect for clay and understanding that it is a magical resource from the earth.

- Unfortunately, we do not have the kiln capacity for production potters. We want all our members and students to have a fair share of kiln space.

- Intentions to learn not just about the craft, but about each other and the community that makes our studio function with effort and thoughtfulness.

What you can expect from WHC:

- A safe space you can be creatively vulnerable. We believe vulnerability is strength and makes way for growth and amazing art!

- Passion for the craft with enthusiasm to guide you! As artists and educators, when you grow, we grow! When you learn, we learn with you!

- A place that isn't chaotic! We minimize our classes to make sure you do not feel crammed and rushed when creating. It is important that we maintain a healthy balance of energy coming in and out the studio with intention. When we prioritize our mental health and capacity, our space will be healthy, too.

- A vision that is bigger than the walls of Wheelhouse and ceramics. Clay is a great way to get to know people and yourself-- it is a vehicle that can create lasting bonds and a strong community. We strive to make this healing resource be accessible to those who don't have the luxury. We hope to build and nurture this with our Members!

Perks + Info:

- Members get studio access everyday during our business hours-- Mondays to Saturdays from 11am to 9pm and Sundays from 11am to 7pm.

- You get your own shelf for storing your tools and work in progress.

- You will be able to sell your work at our Gallery Space, which will be curated by the WHC team. Part of the proceeds from our Gallery Space will fund scholarships and educational programs to share the magic of clay! They will also fund artists residencies and workshops by amazing ceramic artists that we will invite to share their knowledge with y'all!

- You get discounts on classes and workshops and will be invited to member events and artist talks, not just in ceramics but other mediums!

- You can book private one-on-one lessons with our instructors to guide you through a special project or advance techniques you want to learn. 

- You can bring in your own glazes to use after we give you approval upon seeing a test tile. Clay purchased outside of the studio are not allowed.

- Memberships are $795 quarterly or $1,450 semi-annually. Due to a large number of interest, we are not taking memberships on a monthly basis at this time. Memberships begin at the first of the month or pro-rated and memberships fees are due ten days before the renewal date.

Here at Wheelhouse, it is more than just about clay. It is sharing of resources and energy. If our studio is a place you see yourself not only thriving in but also a space in which you can add value to, please fill up the form below to add yourself in the waitlist and we will contact you when a spot opens up. =)
