Green Level Membership

Current Price: $100/month

This is the basic level of membership at Donkey Mud Studio. Bring your own tools. There are a few things you can use of mine, but for the most part, you’ve gotta supply your own. You will also have access to some of the cheaper popular glazes.

Here's what you get with Green Level Membership:

  • Your own private pottery shelf
  • Attend studio during weekly hours (6:30pm-10pm on your assigned day)
  • Pottery lessons and guidance from Dan
  • Use of Dan’s very basic studio tools (green dots)
  • You’ll need to buy clay from me starting at $30 for a 25 lb bag. An average mug takes about a pound of clay to make.
  • Use of a dedicated pottery wheel
  • Use of community worktables
  • Supply your own pottery tools (basic kits are fine)
  • Bring your own pottery apron
  • Use of basic glazes
  • Set price kiln firings (it’s not much and is size-dependent)
  • No access to molds or slip casting (pouring liquid clay into molds), though you can pay $5 any night you want to use them. Liquid slip clay is extra and must be purchased by the gallon.
  • No access to extra studio hours

TOOLS YOU WILL DEFINITELY NEED: pottery sponges, needle tool, wooden pottery rib, wire cutter, fettling knife, paint brushes

OTHER TOOLS YOU MAY WANT: pottery trim tools, carving tools, texture tools, chamois, plastic ribs (MudTools), pottery calipers, long stick sponges, scoring tools, fan brushes, hake brushes, dust mask, fluting tools, etc.

NOTE: I did my best to capture the true essence of each piece via multiple photographs and video. Please note that every piece will look different depending on its surroundings and lighting. All purchases are non-refundable. All my pottery is stoneware, meaning it was fired at higher temperatures with more premium clay and glaze to make it truly durable.
