Need a break from classes? Want to get creative and hands on, but don’t want to go far? Fear no more! The Associated Students of The University of New Mexico (ASUNM) Arts and Crafts Studio is located on UNM main campus on the bottom floor of the Student Union Building. This means it is a short walk from anywhere on campus and accessible to students, faculty, and community members. 

The wonderful staff and community is what really brings this studio to life. Whether you are new to art or very experienced, the staff and other members will always be showing you new and helpful tricks. The staff even hosts weekly workshops where you can learn how to work with metal or throw on the wheel! It is free for those with a membership!

The focus of the studio is split into two mediums. The first is for everything you need to make your next piece of jewelry. They have a full-service jewelry and silversmith bench, and soldering station. They also have a diverse collection of metals, jewels, and other items you might want for your next project. The other half of the studio is dedicated to ceramics. They have a handful of wheels, a wedging table, plenty of tools for throwing and hand building along with a wide selection of glazes. They often have multiple types of fresh clay, along with plenty of recycled clay to play with! Their wonderful staff fully runs the kiln and does two firings a week, making a quick turnaround for all your projects!

The ASUNM Arts and Crafts studio offers semester memberships for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. This membership gives you access to all the tools and supplies you need. Beyond the membership, you are only required to pay a small fee per finished product. When compared to other metal or ceramic studios, it is an amazing opportunity, and the perfect creative escape from classes.
