We have a potters’ wheel, kiln, potters’ tools and some donated glazes and clay. Member fees are $100/mo, which gives you membership access to the Makery as well. If you just want a membership to Community Clay the membership starts at $65, depending on frequency of usage, full-time vs part-time. Additional fees for firing are expected depending on quantity.

More to come about open houses, clay making days and workshops! Come to Craf-tea Tuesday to find out more.

FAB LAB

Another space on site known as the Fab Lab, which is dedicated to folks working in the realm of environmentally friendly sustainable design and appropriate technology. From bike builders to rocket stove makers, gasifier to methane digester, the Fab Lab is an incubator for new ideas in a solutionary future. The space is suited for metal and woodworking, soldering, custom bike frame & trailer fabrication. We have shared tools including table saw, metal & wood chop saw, band saw, drill press, a small CNC machine, a mill and several hand tools.
