At the Reitz Union Arts & Crafts Center, anyone can explore their artistic side in a fun and welcoming environment located in the heart of the University of Florida campus. Our purpose is to provide you with opportunities for relaxation, creative expression, community building and personal growth.
We offer courses on wheel throwing, hand building and sculpture as well as painting and jewelry making. Starting Summer B, you can make your own free craft (starting at 9pm) during GatorNights on Friday nights. We also have a wide variety of unglazed pottery pieces available for painting on your own. Our studio assistants and full time Arts Specialist are available to help you with most anything you would need.
Find out more about our courses at leisure.union.ufl.edu. For those who already have some crafting experience, we also have weekly and semester-long memberships. A membership will provide you access to all the tools and equipment in the studio. Glazes and firings are included in the membership. Clay and jewelry materials are purchased separately. Please see our Membership page for current membership pricing or contact us if you have any questions.
There is no membership or hourly fee required to paint the unglazed pottery pieces. The pottery pieces are priced to include glazes and the firing of the piece, all you have to do is purchase the piece and start painting!
Join us and become part of an inclusive community of makers at the University of Florida!
