  1. We have a new small pottery studio that is part of a nonprofit art center. We are researching ways to enhance our classes model to some kind of membership or "regulars" model so we can accommodate both new students or students who only want a class or 2, as well as enthusiasts and retirees who want to work in the studio with as much as possible. Currently, we charge a set fee for clay and firing that is calculated per pound, so a membership fee (just like a class fee) would be separate. Though many (most?) of the potters here may be self-employed and/or professional potters, we thought you might have some experience and/or good ideas about how to structure membership, payment, etc. for a community studio. We've looked at pottery clubs, at adult education, and at open studio models but wanted to get more information. Thanks for any ideas you can share!
