CBTB has four different membership options: 

In-studio memberships, At Home Memberships, Residencies, & Creative Cross Training.


In-studio members have access to workspaces, equipment/tools, glazes, unlimited firing (done by our staff), and a vibrant community for independent artists who wish to have consistent access and a dedicated workspace.  Our studio is the largest on the west coast, equipped with pottery wheels, a collection of communal glazes that we're constantly adding to, underglazes, colored slips, stains, + more.


No two members are quite alike!  We ask that you have a ceramics background or previous experience taking classes so you'll be able to create without direct supervision or instruction.  Plus, as a member, if you like instruction too you'll get discounts on classes!


In-studio membership includes:

  • Unlimited open studio use 7 days a week from 10 AM-9 PM
  • Dedicated work space for members only.  Always find a wheel or handbuilding table no matter what time of day
  • Private parties and events for members
  • Access to our in-house glazes, slips, washes, underglazes, + more
  • Shelf space for your tools, in-progress pieces, etc.

Select your start date to reserve your membership.  A week before your membership begins you'll recieve an email from Lindsay, our Members' Coordinator.  With her you'll complete online paperwork and set-up a time for your orientation so you can feel confident and comfortable in the space.  


*Clay must be purchased from CBTB to ensure it is the correct firing temperature and won't ruin other members' pieces and/or our kilns

Have you ever wondered how to program a kiln?  Or how to make a large batch of glaze?  Curious how to properly and most efficiently load a kiln with no breakage?  How does a fully stocked ceramics studio work and what aspects are important to consider?  Join our residency program!  10 residents work in a semi-private work space with access to a full rack, per resident, for storage and pieces in progress.  Each resident will work closely with one another, the CBTB staff, and residents will participate in group critiques.  There's just so much to look forward to with a CBTB Artist Residency!
