Indigo Fire, a new clay and glass art studio in Belmont, is hosting a grand-opening party on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the studio, 60 Concord Ave.
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the team, learn about the studio, and see staff demonstrations of wheel throwing on the pottery wheel, glass fusing, hand building with clay, and glazing pottery, according to a press release from the studio.
Owner Suchitra (Suchi) Mumford encourages children as young as three, young adults, parents, and seniors to check out the various classes, drop-in hours, and parties in clay hand-building, clay wheel throwing, and glass fusing.
The studio will also offer occasional workshops focusing on a specific project or technique, as well as ‘take and make’ home art projects, which customers can bring back to the studio to be fired. The shop will carry glass art, pottery, jewelry, and artists’ tools for sale.
The studio, which opens today, will be open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday, with later hours planned for weekend nights. All skill levels are welcome.
The cost to create an object in clay or glass will start at $10 and vary depending on the project. Prices include the cost of materials, glazes, and firing. Trained studio staff will be available to answer questions and assist with projects.
