How this workshop works

  • Sign up online, over the phone or by visiting the studio.
  • Day of: Dress for Mess! We recommend wearing clothes you can get muddy in. Think rainy day gardening muddy.
  • Show up 5-15 minutes early. We promise we're friendly, there's lots to see in our studio PLUS sometimes there are dogs here!
  • The teacher will demo the wheel and give you an overview as to how it works. They can be hands on and will help centre clay for you.
  • Cleanup is a shared activity. Everyone lends a hand and is responsible for cleaning their space.

    Pick Up

    We will trim & bisque fire a piece for you. If you would like to trim your own or would like more of your pieces from the workshop trimmed and fired, just let us know! Pieces usually take 2-3 weeks. We email everyone when the pieces are ready for pick up. We fire according to size and best fit in the kiln.

    Because we all want to create, but stay safe at the same time we have some new guidelines in place:
    1) Keep your tools to yourself. Everyone will be given a sanitized set of tools at their station. Please keep them to yourself! For once sharing is not caring.
    2) Dress for the mess! We can't provide aprons. If you would like to keep your clothes as clean as possible please bring a towel or apron with you, Extra points if it says "Kiss the Cook".
    3) To maintain physical distance guidelines we've rearranged our classroom so everyone can create and be safe. You will each have your own station.

    4) Please stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or have been in contact with someone with Covid-19. We'll arrange for an alternate experience as a makeup for you.
    5) Per sec.22 masks must be worn. We also have sanitized face shields available for all students who wish to have one. Sanitizer is at the entrance for your convenience!

    We only allow up to 8 students in a class, so they fill up fast!
    You can pay in full online or in person to hold your spot.
