In consideration of the growing public health concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, the Hot Shops will be closed to the public through the end of April. We will reassess the situation at that time. Contact individual artists/teachers for class status or for private appointments. Check the classes page for contact info.

What is the Hot Shops?
There are four anchor studios, Bruning Sculpture, Hot Shops Pottery, CK Fabrication, and Crystal Forge, that make up the very heart of the Hot Shops, with the molten nature of their work giving it its “hot” name. The Hot Shops Art Center also hosts over 80 studio artists, as well as multiple gallery spaces, in our building complex located in downtown Omaha, one block north of TD Ameritrade Ballpark on 13th Street, between Izard and Nicholas. For complete information, please follow the General Info link.

Like the name implies, the Hallway Gallery is the hallway that sits between the Nicholas St and 1301 Galleries. It is also access to the rest of the main floor and core shops.
