Tuition: $200 | Materials: $15

Consisting of a covered deck set amongst the giant mossy douglas firs and vine maples within earshot of a lush and cold mountain creek, the 10’x10’ studio space contains a simple human powered Lockerbie kick wheel, a table and shelf. The studio residency also includes a dedicated camping spot. Your Forest Studio experience provides 12 lbs of clay and associated bisque firing. More clay, return shipping, and other firing services are available for an extra charge, as are tiny cabin or bunkhouse stays, subject to availability. Upon your arrival, you'll be given an orientation of the grounds and East Creek's shared resources, including the outdoor kitchen, composting toilet, outdoor shower, and fire pit, which are all available for Forest Studio guests.
As there is no formal instruction, The Forest Studio Residency is designed for experienced ceramicists who are ready to work independently on self-guided projects.
