Open Studio is Now Open Again!


If you're not already registered with us through VolunteerLocal (VL) you'll be prompted to submit your contact information, which is required to Reserve Open Studio Time (OST).  You will also need to reserve your OST through VL before you arrive at SPG, and you'll also need to 'check-in' through VL once you arrive.


Our new OSTs are now scheduled in 2-hour blocks for $25 per month.

Payment is required upon arrival.


Open Studio Participants will be required to follow our Sanitization Procedures, wear a Mask, and practice diligent Social Distancing at all times.


VolunteerLocal notes:

  • To reserve OST or any other event, you must first complete the 'SPG VL Registration' form
  • To reserve OST or any other event, you must visit our 'VL Reservation' page in a web browser (chrome, safari, firefox, edge etc...)
  • You cannot view OST slots, SPG Events, or reserve OST through the app.
  • The VolunteerLocal app (iOS & Android) is the best way to view, check-in to, or Cancel your Reservations.
  • There will always be a link to our VL Reservation Page on the 'Home' page and 'Open Studio' pages of our website www.SpokanePottersGuild.org

We've made significant changes to the Open Studio Processes, so please read the information below:

  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY & OPEN STUDIO PARTICIPATION
  • We're now offering Open Studio in strict 2-hour increments.
  • You must reserve your Open Studio Time in advance through VolunteerLocal, more information below.
  • You are responsible for cancelling your OS Reservation in advance if you cannot attend your reservation.
  • You must check-in to your Open Studio Reservation, through VolunteerLocal, when you arrive.
  • For September & October OS will cost $25/month.  Classes begin in the last week of September, and there are less OS hours overall, so times will be restricted more than usual. 
  • As always, the monthly OS fee is due when you arrive at SPG for the first time each month.  (If the monthly OS price changes in November, we will email in advance.)
  • You must have been an active open studio member before the quarantine.
  • With the mandated occupancy reduction, we have a 5-person limit, so there will be slots for 4 OS Participants in each 2-hour block.
  • Please be mindful that we have many participants eager to use the studio again, so for the moment we're limiting OS Registrations to 1 per day per person, however . . .
  • If you are already at the studio for your scheduled OS reservation, and if there is open availability in the next time slot, you can register for that next time slot and extend your OS time into the next 2-hour block.
