RENT THE HOT SHOP

Rentals in the Hot Shop are generally booked in three-hour increments called "blow slots" and cost $170 for non-members, with decreasing rates that correlate to our Studio Memberships. 

 

Hot Casting is occasionally scheduled and open for rental; as this is particularly material-intensive, please contact us to determine the needs of your project.
