Hello!

I love the pottery wheel and I hope you will too! Martin, from the Oak Bay studio, helped to develop this beautiful mug. We had so much fun practicing the stack and slam technique by combining 3 clays—white speckled stoneware clay, brown speckled stoneware clay, and dark brown stoneware. We then shaped the mugs on the clay wheel. In this class, we cover the stack and slam technique, centering, and handle making. Check out our youtube video for more details!

If you go over your pre-booked time, you will be charged for another full hour. No exceptions. If you are late, your start time will be taken as the time you booked.

We use professional materials and art supplies which means paint may stain clothing, shoes, and jackets. Wet paint may be lurking around any corner. We do not have aprons or smocks to borrow at the studio. Please note, even if you are not doing a painting workshop, you may still get paint on you.

The studio is not responsible for damage to clothing or personal belongings. Please leave the ball gowns and tuxedos at home.
