Workshops

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.

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.

Glazed pieces need to be picked up 1 to 2 weeks later after firing.
