You've come to the right place to get started!


The Contemporary Ceramics Studio Association (CCSA) is the starting point for many that are considering opening their own Paint Your Own Pottery (PYOP) business. Membership to the CCSA allows you to access our complete online library of documents, photos, clip art, camera ready ads, networking with current owners and suppliers and much, much more. 
Opening your own business can be overwhelming.  Location, staffing, supplies, marketing and all the day to day items you need to check off your list.  We’re here to help.  The CCSA does not offer PYOP Consulting nor do we own studios; however every day we help over 700 pottery studios all over the world by supplying support, ideas, inspiration and education.  We can help put you in touch with Pottery Consultants, Suppliers and other Studio Owners who can help guide you down the path to opening your own Pottery Studio. 
If you’re ready to explore the option of starting your own pottery studio, joining the CCSA should be your first step. We’d like to give you our FREE Pre-Opening Guide for New Studios to get you started.   
The CCSA offers those who want to learn how to open a PYOP access to all the benefits of a Paint Your Own Pottery Studio Member and you’ll also get our Retail Guide to Opening Your Own Paint Your Own Pottery Studio.  This guide is packed with step-by-step instructions, ideas, and tips written by PYOP Owners who have already walked down this path.  Who better to learn from than seasoned studio owners who have real world experience?
