Products produced during the time are sold to cover the cost of instruction and work space and if any extra money is left from that production, it is split 50:50 between the studio and the potter. This program also offers after hours work space access.
There is a large studio apartment available upstairs which rents for $400 per month, Included is heat, electricity, water, sewer, garbage and laundry facility making this a very affordable option.
