The cleanliness of the studio is very important to all of us. As such, the cleaning committee is our largest committee, composed of about 20 members that keep the studio safe and clean for all. The cleaning committee does not clean up after other members, rather they maintain the general cleanliness of the entire studio.
The clay committee is a critical part of the whole club operation, typically run by six to eight members. Clay committee members, affectionately referred to as our Mudders, are responsible for ordering clay, maintaining the pug mill and—most importantly—recycling clay. Keeping the clay recycle streams running smoothly is time-consuming and labor-intensive work. It involves maintaining recycled clay buckets, pouring and drying clay mud, and wedging / pug milling the clay back to a reusable state. Mudders organize clay orders twice a year and currently provide four different types of stoneware clay.

The sales committee is responsible for raising money by selling items donated by members. Each member is expected to donate three pieces per term for sales and donate a minimum of 1 hour per year to help with sales events. The chair of sales is responsible for ensuring we have inventory and volunteers for sales in April and December.
