The Krasl Clay Artist Guild is a group of experienced ceramicists with independent access to the KAC ceramics studio. Members support and inspire one another through collaboration in the studio and participation in KAC events including Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff, Soup’s On, and Art Markets.

Open Studio Hours
Studios are available during regular KAC open hours, except during scheduled classes. All available studio hours are reflected in the Doodle Polls (see below).
In-Studio Guild members must fill out a Doodle Poll to reserve a space and time at least 24 hours prior to working in the studio. Please arrive and depart as scheduled and plan for cleanup time. A maximum of 10 (8 in main studio/2 in glazing) guild members may work in the studios at the same time.
Please reserve your primary workspace at the following links.
*To schedule short visits to the studio (5 minutes or less), email email@example.com so that Nathan can notify front desk staff.
**Guild members who have special permission to work in the drying room or kiln room must email firstname.lastname@example.org so that Nathan can notify front desk staff.
Clay may be purchased for $25 per 25 lb. bag. We stock a variety of cone 6 clay bodies from West Michigan Clay and Laguna. See list of clay bodies HERE.
Glazes are included in In-Studio Guild Membership. Curbside Guild Members may purchase a variety of KAC glazes for $5 per 8 oz. Email email@example.com and specify which colors you would like to purchase. See glaze test tiles HERE.
Generally, the turnaround time for firing is about 2 weeks, but it may take up to 1 month depending on the amount of work we receive from guild members and students.
Krasl Clay Artist Guild membership is not to be confused with a Krasl Art Center membership and its benefits. KAC membership is encouraged but not required for Clay Artist Guild consideration and participation.
