Workshop FAQs

Yes.

There are 8 new projects each month. New projects are announced on the first of each month for the following month. For example, November workshops will be announced on October 1st.

Simply book on the workshop pages. If you are booking a glazing visit that falls outside the original month you booked simply choose glazing on another workshop time that works for you. You have 30 days from the original booking to complete your project. Projects must be picked up within 2 weeks of the end of the 30 day period. Storage space limited.

Just enjoying an afternoon at the studio, getting a group of friends together to celebrate, booking the whole studio for your team, or just enjoying some family time. Whatever you need! Please note, the studio is a communal space so make sure to book a spot for anyone attending and know that there will be other people in the studio unless you book the whole studio. Please make sure to look at the workshop timelines in the project descriptions and note if minimum times are required to complete the project.

It is good to be approximately 5-10 minutes early so you can get started on time. When you arrive you will be greeted by an instructor and then seated as soon as possible. The instructor will bring you the materials you need to get started and walk you through important information regarding the medium you have chosen. They will then show you how to navigate through the video step by step instructions. If you have questions or need an instructor to demo a technique, the instructors will be circling around the room to help. We run our workshops like this so you can work at your own pace and socialize with friends as much as you like throughout your studio time.

You can book more time at a minimum rate of $15 per hour. In your original booking, book extra time if you are chatty. :) If you under book, we cannot guarantee you will be able to extend your booking on that same day. But no big deal! Just come back another day! Please note, no credits or refunds for unused time.

We are a creative space for you to socialize, relax and work at your own pace. Follow the video and instructor’s instructions. The instructors will be circling the room if you have questions. This way you can work at your own pace, socialize on your own time and get as much or as little help as you need.

Sure, if there is space but… there is likely not space so … maybe just book. :)

Sorry, we do not offer this option. Please follow recommended time bookings for every project.

Each workshop is offered for 1 month and they fill REALLY fast. So if you see a time you want, we recommend booking asap. :)

Once you get in the studio and start creating you will see it is like a time warp! Time flies when you are having fun! As you would expect, it is really hard to know exactly how much time you will need. Every artist is different and often you may want to practice a bit before making your final piece.

But! You don’t have to complete the project in one sitting. In fact, some cannot be completed in one day. Often clay needs to be fired in the kiln before you can glaze (paint) your art. Each project has a recommended booking time and how many visits are required in the description.

Book as many days and times as you like. You have 1 month to finish each project. We will hold the project for up to 30 days from the first time you booked. After this time the step by steps and instructions will no longer be available.

*Projects must be picked up within 2 weeks after the 30 day booking period.

Everyone needs to stick to the project they choose from the menu & follow the sizing guidelines.

-We are not Walmart with unlimited resources, art supply costs are really high, rent is high, shipping is high, overhead is high, we may be able to offer a credit in some cases like clay breakage, but if you miss your workshop or call 10 mins before to cancel, the space was still set aside for you and we cannot offer a refund or credit.

-If you overwork the clay or add too much water it will cave in or crack. Follow the time guidelines and instructions as best you can.

You are welcome to book glaze multiple items at a time. Glazing time is $15/hr. You can glaze more than one piece during your glazing booking, time permitting. For example, if you book an hour glazing, and can finish glazing 2 pieces from 2 different building or throwing sessions in that hour glazing session - that is great!

Yes, $17 per piece plus tax if you would like us to glaze your clay for you. This is not available for hand glazed, decorative pieces.

Sometimes things happen …
-We use Ditto Polymer Clay, which is an incredibly malleable oven-bake clay that comes in many colours
