We operate The Mudroom at OCS as an open-studio environment.  It is open during regular stores hours to those wishing to work on clay, glaze bisque, etc.  Our staff can and will assist you with projects provided you have some basic knowledge and skills.

For those new to ceramics or wishing to develop their skills - we offer classes and events - visit the events page for current offerings

At the discretion of OCS staff, wheel availability is subject to change depending on weekly class sizes and demand. Priority is given to events and workshops.

We frequently create custom workshops for schools, scouts, adult gatherings, corporate team building, kids parties, and many others. We gladly host private events in our studio space! Contact us at 330-296-3815 or to talk to our staff and discuss ideas for your event!

Studio access allows you to use equipment, decorating accessories and studio glazes. For those working with clay, we ask that you purchase your clay from us. For those who'd like to pick a piece of bisque and glaze: the price of the bisque is in addition to the studio fee. Kiln firings are also in addition to studio fees
