Why we love this

  • We are potters who speak the language of clay!
  • Clay is a magical and all-encompassing medium.
  • Working with clay is a calming experience, which helps children focus when completing tasks.
  • Clay is a fully natural, non-toxic composition of earth. It consists only of minerals and water.
  • Students enjoy the tactile and mental stimulation, creativity, and pure joy that clay provides.  
  • Students get to poke, push, build, spread, roll, and squeeze all of the goodness that clay provides.  
  • Our classes encourage students to progress at their own pace and enjoy the creative process.

    Creative process and art technique

    Slab: Creating a form utilizing flat pieces of clay.

    Bisque: Pottery which has been fired once, without glaze.

    Scratch: To use a pin tool to roughen two clay surfaces that need to be joined. After you scratch, you slip.

    Slip: A watered-down clay solution, used as a sort of mortar to join two clay pieces together. Together the process is known as scratch-and-slip.

    Overglaze: The outer layer or coat of glaze on a ceramics piece.

    Wheel Throwing: The process of forming a pot out of clay on the potter's wheel. There are several steps in this process, including wedging, centering, opening, pulling walls, and finalizing the form.

    PARENTS NOTE TO DISCUSS WITH STUDENTS:

    To prepare, it is important for kids to know to take their time, go slow and enjoy the process with their creations. When creating we will emphasize using different techniques and the art of adding small details.

    We will encourage enjoying the process, creativity, patience, and attention to detail. 

    Parents, please discuss this expectation with children before the class in order to ensure your child understands that we will be creating with details and practice in mind.

    * Our goal is to maintain a respectful, patient, and creative learning environment. Please note disrespectful and disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated. In the event of misconduct, parents will be called to pick up their child immediately. 

    Class

    Does paint come out of clothes? Acrylic paint does not come out of clothes. We cannot guarantee that clay or other art materials will come out of clothes. Students should always come to the studio dressed for mess. 

    Are the session classes different throughout the week? We offer the same class multiple times throughout the week so students can register for the class day/time that suits them best!

    Do my kids need to bring anything to class? For session classes kids will need to bring a mask, water bottle, indoor shoes, and be dressed for mess—acrylic paint does NOT come out of clothes. All art materials will be provided at the studio.

    Are there classes for drop-ins? All students must be registered before class starts so we can prepare. 

     

    Missed / Late Classes

    What if my child will miss a class? If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum 1 catch-up class per session. Catch-up classes do not include any art history content and are purely to ensure completion of projects on time. 

     

    What if I’m going to be late for class? Being on time is important as we have LOTS to do each class! Late arrivals are very distracting for the group and delay class, which can lead to unfinished projects and prevent class from finishing on time. If you know you’ll be late please advise the studio ASAP. The door is locked for safety once class starts so if you arrive late you may need to wait outside until a teacher is available to let you inside.

    Can I bring home materials for someone who misses a class? No. If a student misses a class they may attend a catch-up class so they don’t fall behind on their artwork. Maximum 1 catch-up class per session. 

    Covid

    What if my class is canceled or postponed due to a COVID-19 related lockdown? If a class cannot take place due to increased restrictions or lockdown then the class may be rescheduled, students may be transferred to another class, or a credit may be provided for use in future or online classes. No refunds.

    Does my child need to wear a mask at the studio? Yes, everyone inside the studio must wear a mask for the duration of the class.

    Can my kids share a station? Stations can be shared between 2 people who are in the same bubble.

    Artwork Pick Up

    Will I receive an email when my artwork is ready? We do not email or call. Please check your artwork status on our website, and book an appointment to collect it once ready.

    How long do I have to collect my artwork? Once your artwork status says ‘ready for collection’ you have 2 weeks to collect your artwork. We have A LOT of artwork moving through the studio and limited storage, so cannot retain unclaimed artwork past that time.
