At-Home Independent Study

We are offering at-home independent study under a new structure starting this fall.  Going forward (until COVID is no longer an impact) at-home independent study will be available in two month sessions.  These two month sessions will be available every month.

 

Students get a 25lb bag of clay (porcelain is $25 extra) and another bag can be purchased for $50 ($75 for porcelain).  The clay options are:

- White Stoneware (fires to an eggshell white)

- Speckled Brown Stoneware (hazelnut brown color with speckles)

- Dark Brown Stoneware (chocolate brown)

- Porcelain

You can come into the studio anytime we are open to pick up clay (Mon-Fri 10am-9pm, Sat 10-6pm, Sun 12-6pm).  If you would prefer the clay to be set outside for pickup, just send us an email.

Finished greenware pottery can be dropped off on the shelves outside Indigo Fire(you may drop off pottery when the studio isn't open at your own risk).  It takes 2 weeks on average for pottery(bisque and glaze) to get fired.  As with our traditional independent study, we ask that you try to fire and glaze your work within the 2 month period you're registered for.  If you're planning on renewing, this is no problem.

 

Glazing can be done during the following times:

Monday and Wednesday, 1-6pm

Tuesday and Thursday, 1-3pm

Friday, 10am-9pm

Saturday, 1-6pm

Sunday, 12-6pm

If you have not taken a class or independent study at Indigo Fire before, you must attend a Glaze Orientation class before glazing at the studio.  You must have used cone 6 glazes at some point previously to register.

Glaze orientation classes will be from 6-7pm on the first Friday of the month.
