Open Hours & Price List

28th March 2020 – Studio CLOSED

23rd March 2020 – Update regards Studio Closure

Dear Customers, 
Black Duck Ceramics Studio is allowed to remain open for the moment. However I strongly believe I have a moral duty to close based on the potentially devastating consequences should a staff member or customer fall ill with Covid-19. It is with a very heavy heart that I will close the studio until the risk to the community is over. 
This week only, I will open between the hours of 11 am and 1 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday for customers to come in to pick up pieces or purchase take home kits to complete works in progress. For those with take home kits, I can arrange private appointments for firing and purchase of materials (with distancing measures in place) at the studio. 
If anyone wishes to purchase any of our gallery pieces come in this week or I can arrange via email. 
We don’t know what the future holds however we are hoping when the health risk is over, we can reopen with all our wonderful staff and welcome you back in for workshops. 
I will miss so many of you whom I have come to know well and I hope to see you in the future. For future workshops that have been paid for, I will arrange a credit or reimburse you. In this case, I will be in touch with you personally via email or telephone to arrange. Please allow me a few days to get in touch with you regards this. 
For holders of gift certificates, there will be an extension on the expiry date when we reopen.
Stay well and all the best to you and your families and friends, 

We are a Ceramics Studio based in Wollongong.  A great place to slow down, get together & have creative fun with family and friends.
