Monthly Studio Membership FAQ's (Subscription students follow same policies as members.

Q. Do I get my same spot every month?

A. Yes. As long as you confirm with Rachelle before the 19th of the month prior to the new month, your spot stays yours. Your credit card will be charged on the day you register. However, starting month 2, which will be June, your credit card will be charged on the 1st of the month for however long you choose to continue. (June 1, July 1, August 1, etc - hopefully forever!🥰)

Q. How do I cancel my membership?

A. You must inform Rachelle via email (Rachelle@MarvelousMudPotteryStudio.com) by the 19th of the month prior to cancellation, so your credit card is not charged.

Q. What if I am a current student and I need to switch spots for the monthly membership when it begins or any time later?

A. Rachelle begins putting feelers out when students tell her they need to change times. Given ample notice, your changes should be able to be accommodated.

Q. May I register for more than 1 spot?


A. Yes! You may register for more than 1 spot if there are available spots.

Q. Will I be able to make-up a class that I have to miss?

A. There will not be any make-ups for missed classes, no exceptions. The monthly Open Studio dates are provided as an accommodation in case you need to miss class, although I will not be instructing. Those that don't miss a class, get to come to Open Studio as a bonus!🙌

Q. When will the Open Studios take place?

A. We offer 20 Open Studio time slots each month. Dates and times vary. The Open Studio calendar for the month is usually released around the 25th-27th of the month prior.

Q. What will I be able to do in Open Studio?


A. Open Studio is an additional opportunity for you to create! You will be able to work on the wheel, handbuild, start new projects, work on current projects, etc. You will have access to all the equipment, tools, student glazes, etc. You are in charge of how you would like to use your time!

Q. Will Rachelle be teaching during Open Studio?

A. No, Rachelle will not be teaching in Open Studio. Open Studios are monitored by a Studio Assistant and are not for instructional purposes. Studio Assistant is available to help with studio logistics, ie; finding something, they are not there to instruct.

Q. Do I need to buy my clay through you?

A. Yes, you must buy your clay through Marvelous Mud Pottery Studio. There is a list of types of clay to choose from in the online membership resources. Only clay that is used in our studio will be fired. No outside clay and no outside pieces will be fired.😎


Q. May I split extra bags of clay with other students?


A. Yes, but that is completely between you and them.👏🏼

Q. What glaze choices will I have?


A. There is a variety of glaze choices, typically around 100 of them, plus a Zinc-Free Clear for your use. Some of these glazes may rotate and Rachelle will take requests into consideration. Rachelle tries to provide stable glazes with consistent results. There are additional glazes that you have access to upon request like fluxes and Red Iron Oxide, as long as you have had the in class training to use them. If you would like anything different, you are welcome to purchase your own if you get them approved by Rachelle first. They will be solely for your use and you can bring them with you when needed. They must be approved by Rachelle so that I can determine if they are compatible with the clays we use.

Q. May I work on pieces at home and bring them in to be fired?


A. No, only pieces that are done in Marvelous Mud Pottery Studio will be fired.

Q. May I bring in outside pieces to be fired?

A. Again, no. Only pieces that are done in Marvelous Mud Pottery Studio with the clays and glazes I approve, will be fired.

Q. Would Rachelle be willing to guide me, coach me on the business of art, setting up my own home studio, learning in-depth about firing, custom glazing, etc?

A. Rachelle is willing to help you in more specific aspects of your personal goals as we progress. She will answer general questions as time allows in weekly classes. For more in-depth and specific guidance, Rachelle offers mentorship and coaching appointments for an additional fee. Please email Rachelle (Rachelle@MarvelousMudPotteryStudio.com) with your requests.

Q. May I produce in quantity to sell at art shows, galleries, or other retail and wholesale opportunities?

Q. No, whether you are a professional artist/potter or a hobbyist that sells your work, you may not use our studio for production of any quantity.

Q. Do you offer internships/apprenticeships?

A. No, at this time, we do not offer internships or apprenticeships.
