Gasworks NYC is dedicated to equity, kindness, and shared creativity in our community. Membership costs contribute to the financial vehicle that allows us to support our staff, offer extensive ceramic resources for members and students, expand our studio outreach programs, and continue the Gasworks NYC mission. The ultimate goal is greater equity in the arts and creating space where it has historically been denied.
All memberships (regular, lite, and wheel-at-home) memberships are sold out. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the membership application.

- GENERATING ($295): a generating price point that helps create a more equitable community
