• Do you prefer to work on your own?
• Do you like to be creative without specific time restraints to complete a project or idea?
• Do you want to improve your craft, but do not have space or materials at home?
• Do you enjoy being creative and socially engaged with other creative individuals?
According to our Members, Art Students and our Community the answer to each of those questions is a resounding “YES”! And because we listen to you, we are offering two NEW creative opportunities, an Open Pottery Studio and an Open Sewing Studio at the Suffolk Center.
Welcome to the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts! We hope to see YOU in a Class and in a Studio!

Experienced potters may use our equipment and kilns for independent projects once they have taken a pottery class with us at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts.
Though open studio time is purchased as a “class,” you are truly on your own! Use the class registration to purchase a Single Session or a Six-Session Ticket, each includes glazing and firing. Studio High Fire Stoneware 240 Clay is not included, but available for purchase in 25 lb. blocks in advance.
All sessions and clay must be paid prior to attending the Open Studio.
Our fully equipped pottery studio will allow you to explore your creativity with this lovely hands-on medium. The studio has 8 wheels, a slab roller, an extruder, and many other tools for any throwing or hand-building project. Skilled pottery instructors will be available to answer your questions or provide you with assistance.
The Open Pottery Studio is OPEN from 12:00 until 3:00 on Saturdays beginning October 30, 2021. Additional hours will be added as interest escalates.
A single session ticket is for one (up to 3 hour) “period of time” in the pottery studio. A single session can not be used in smaller increments or over two or more sessions. Therefore, if you purchase a single session ticket and work in the studio that day for less than 3 hours, the time not used is not transferable to another date or time.
NOTE: When purchasing sessions or clay, each will be a separate transaction. In order to gain access to the Open Pottery Studio, you must bring a copy of each receipt to the session. The facilitator of the Studio will record the items you purchased.
The cost of a single session ticket is $25.00 and includes studio glazes and bisque firing. This ticket does not include any clay. Clay may be purchased separately.
A six- session ticket is for six (up to 3 hour) “period of times” in the pottery studio. A single session can not be used in smaller increments or over two or more sessions.
The cost of a six- session ticket is $125.00 and includes studio glazes and bisque firing. This ticket does not include any clay. Clay may be purchased separately.
Clay in 25 pound blocks is available for $30.00
