A great opportunity learn ceramics, meet others and have fun.

Working with ceramics has therapeutic benefits and helps to de-stress. Come along to a workshop and immerse yourself in this calming ancient art.
This is a small studio, so we are fortunate to be able to work with each participant and teach you whatever you would like to make. You can select to hand build with clay or ceramic ready-made pieces. We do not currently offer a pottery wheel.

UPDATE:

We are operating under Covid-19 NSW Govt regulations. 8 people maximum in adult workshops. Due to the pandemic and our determination to remain open and continue to offer a relaxing place to make and get together, we require a non refundable deposit when booking. We thank you for your understanding. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL with full name, telephone number and email address for contact tracing.
IMPORTANT: Customers that arrive to the studio with any signs of COVID (coughing, sneezing and or a temperature of over 38 degrees) will be asked to reschedule their class for the safety of others.

COST & TIME

Available to come in once only? Adult workshop (12 yrs +) $60.

Ceramics is traditionally a 2 workshop process so we recommend doing 2 workshops. In the 1st workshop $50, we’ll teach you how to make and in the 2nd workshop $40, how to glaze your piece. Workshops should be taken 1 or 2 weeks apart from each other to allow for drying and firing of pieces in between. Total $90 for 2 workshops or $80 for regular VIP customers.

We recommend you budget up to 2.5 hours in the studio.

Kids pricing starts at $15.

Unique materials and large quantities of materials may incur an additional cost.

PICKING UP YOUR PIECES

If you attend a $60 making & underglazing workshop, please pick up your ceramics 3 weeks after your workshop. After a glazing workshop, your piece will be ready for pick up after 1 week. Check out our regular open times HERE to drop in & pick up as we are not open regular retail hours.

We do not to contact you to pick up your finished pieces and we apologise for this policy. Due to many pieces not having names on them at the time of making, it is not possible for us to identify all pieces and promise to contact you.  

When you come in for a workshop, we will request you complete a small form with your contact details and date of making. This is to ensure we can monitor correctly the drying time for your piece prior to firing and contact you in the event of a rare incident such as a breakage or firing delay. 

For private parties, we will contact you for pick up when all pieces from your party are ready.

 If you are unable to pick up for any reason, please let us know via email to blackduckstudio1@gmail.com and if you live a distance away, we can arrange postage.
