Are you an advanced potter looking for studio time and space to develop your skills? Independent Studio is an opportunity for developed potters to access the artsPlace ceramics studio and storage space.*


All participants must:

  • have completed at least three artsPlace ceramics courses already**
  • be willing to offer a minimum of 3 hours of volunteer service to artsPlace during 2023
  • attend an orientation covering the independent studio guidelines

Space is limited, and registration will be approved by artsPlace staff to ensure potters are advanced and can work on their own. If artsPlace receives more applications than Independent Studio placements, registrants will be chosen for their placements by LOTTERY. The first selection process for Independent Studio placements occurred on Dec. 19 2022, but there are still some places left!

*Independent Studio at artsPlace is only for PRE-PROFESSIONAL artists hoping to advance their skills. It is not for artists selling their artwork commercially.

**If you have the equivalent experience of three classes taken at a different studio other than artsPlace, we may honour that experience BUT you must have taken at least one full multi-week course at artsPlace so that you are fully familiar with our studio and its protocols before you can be accepted as an Independent Studio participant. Please indicate your experience at a different studio when list your most recent classes taken.
