Silvermine Open Studios
Students enrolled in a CURRENT term are entitled to 30 hours of open ceramic studio time to be used during the semester: The Open Studio gives current term students enrolled in an instructional ceramic course at Silvermine an opportunity to work on their own projects and improve skills. At the first class, students will receive a card to be punched by the monitor at each Open Studio session. Students must have their card to attend. This is not an instructional class.
