Pottery Class Dates FAQ's
Please read the booking parameters below:
The session is geared towards first timer potters…. :)
Q: How long is the class generally?
A: About two hours. We don't have a stop watch. We just hang out and enjoy each others company. About 3 hours for weekend classes. See note at the top of this page about weekend classes.
Q: How many pieces will we make?
A: It depends on when you take the class. On weekends you will make two pieces each, as there will be max 5 people per workshop. During the week, classes of 2 or 3 people will make 3 pieces each. Check out instagram for some student outcomes!
I have a process I will guide you through.
(No you will not make a teapot on your first date, or third, but maybe the 23rd class)

Minimum age is 12 years old (Lots of reasons why, tons of years teaching says this is best here)
Under 13 must be accompanied by a guardian.
Q: When can we book a class?
A:Times for the classes are based on mutually agreed schedules. We teach Tuesday and Thursday morn/aft/eve- then Saturday and Sunday times for booking are 10am on the weekend as I operate my shop 1-5pm (more options mid-week)
Q: What sort of lead time do we need to book a class?
A: In the past approximately 8 weeks, but for 2024 its about 4 months.
Look at your June dates at the moment weekend (and May weekdays) (updated Jan 30/24). There are still lots of switcharoos that go on, illness etc so keep an eye on my Stories for Instagram for a possible opening.
Q: How do we know when you are available?
A: Check the form below, as it is contantly updated for guidelines by month. We don't post our calendar online. We also don't host classes everyday as we are a production studio as well and need to fufill our shop and online orders. We love teaching but we like to keep it fresh so that is the other reason we don't do this everyday.
We respond within a few hours. If you do not hear from us, please check your spam folders.
Q: How does payment work?
A: An etransfer deposit of $100+ will secure your class, only AFTER we have secured a date. Please don't send transfers before we organize. That will not make me happy. And I might just go shopping with it.
Once a deposit is received we will enter you into our calendar. And if you delay your date confirmation with a deposit, you may lose your spot, so be committed once we firm up the date. Nothing gets booked without an etransfer.... unless you are my mom :D
Q: Do you have gift certificates?
A: Yes and no. For classes we will create for you a 'pottery promise' pdf/card. You can give this away.
It has no value. We prefer not to have large numbers of gift cards in circulation, as we could/and have been injured in the past= disaster.
Its a benefit to you because you are only spending on the class when its booked. I will help sort out both your guests and your booking $ when everyone decides its time for a pottery date treat!
B: For the shop we have gift cards available. We can't put expiry dates on the them, but we would appreciate it if they were used within 2 years. See above as to why.
Q: Where do you recommend we stay if we are out of town?
A: I highly recommend AirBNB Sophie Hogans as your host which is located in our downtown, about a 5 minute walk to our studio. It is also adjacent to the park which is excellent for having a picnic, Farmers Market on the weekend etc. She works tirelessly on the gardens and has made a special place outside for you to enjoy and relax.
Here, or here. She has two beautiful places on her property. Tell her I recommended her as a host!
If you like Glamping try here. About a 5 min drive to town.
