We encourage creativity, individuality and expression, making work from start to finish. No part of the ceramic process is instant, so please have fun learning and experimenting. We assist in making anything you want to during the session, and have suggestions and examples. All are welcome to try the wheel in the studio. Work is decorated with a clay-based paint when wet and then dried, glazed and fired.
Monthly payments and classes: monthly fees are discounted rates and are payable upfront EACH month. You’re welcome to make a class up during the same month. Classes are not carried over into a new month. Should you be unable to fit into existing classes you need to discuss this with me at the start of the month. You will otherwise forfeit the payment. No refunds are given
Please note that Friday and Saturday sessions are sometimes fully booked for workshops and events. If you miss a class you may miss notification of changes, please whatsapp to confirm your next one
Materials Clay, decorating slips, transparent glaze and firing is provided for all classes. Underglazes and glazes are an additional cost.

Work takes three weeks until ready for collection. If some works are made using thick clay drying will take longer. If your group is approx 20 people, we may need an extra week. Collection times are class times.
We request that no sweets, sweet drinks or cakes are sent with your children for regular classes. This does not apply to birthdays, parties, special events, where we request clay work is done before the sugar rush begins.
