Blue Sage Studios in now offering memberships. A membership to Blue Sage Studios does come with a few perks, not to mention a good cup of coffee.

Current as of Janurary 7, 2014

Membership is $300 a month. This includes:

  • 6 Hours of studio/month
  • 1.5 hour block of time (includes set-up and clean-up time)
  • .5 hour grinding time after each session
  • 20 minutes/month cleaning the studio and gallery

There is an additional fee of $20 per hour if a studio assistant (Andy or Roy) is required. Members may bring their own assistant as long as the assistant has a liability waiver and a record of lessons on file. No inexperienced people may serve as assistant. For safety reasons, only the glassblower and assistant are allowed on blowing floor.

All members must have liability waiver on file. Proficiency in the glassblowing process is required for membership. Proficiency is the ability to work alone in creating the desired piece. Glassblowing lessons are advised until proficiency is acquired. Glassblowing lessons are $85 an hour. Membership time does not include a lesson. If a lesson is desired please notify either Andy or Roy in advance.

With more people coming into the studio to work, the one and a half hour time slots are important to maintain. At this time, we are limited to one time slot per week until all members and regulars have signed up. When possible please schedule at the same time/same day each week. If studio is unable to keep appointment rescheduling/reimbursement of time will occur.
