The minimum rental time is 1 hour. We do not "pro-rate" time so please plan to work by the hour. If this is your first time in the mudroom, you must sign a waiver and receive a 15 minute instructional tour before using any of the equipment. NO OPEN TOED shoes will be allowed in the mudroom and safety glasses must be worn at all times. There is no open studio or kiln rental when classes or workshops are running. We offer 20% off rental rates to AAE Glass students who have taken previous workshops.
