To take full advantage of your workshop

We recommend that you arrive a few minutes before class starts and wait in our café area. Take the opportunity to grab a bite to eat or order a coffee if you wish! You will be able to enter the studio at the scheduled time of your lesson.

This pottery class is for adults only (teenagers aged 13 and over are accepted if accompanied by an adult). For the little ones, check out our workshops for children or parent-child!


Some recommendations before making pottery

  • Have short fingernails
  • Do not wear rings, bracelets or watches
  • Wear clothes and shoes suitable for a workshop. It is recommended to bring an apron or cloths to dry your hands
  • Clean your hands when entering the workshop
  • Thoroughly clean the equipment you will use during lessons

Firing of the pieces

You will receive an email approximately 6 weeks after your workshop, when your ceramic piece will be ready. As our emails often end up in unwanted boxes, add us to your contacts so you don't miss it!

It may happen that a piece breaks during firing, because ceramics is a complex art that involves several risks throughout the process. If your part did not survive the process, unfortunately we do not offer replacement or re-course. The introductory course is focused on the experience of pottery, not on the result.

Policies and change of dates

We do not issue refunds.

If you are unable to attend the date chosen for your workshop, please notify us by email at least one week in advance in order to move your workshop free of charge. A fee of $15 per person will apply for any transfer requested less than 7 days in advance, but more than 48 hours for the initiation to pottery workshops. For ceramic initiation days, the fee will be $30.

If you have to cancel with less than 48 hours notice, unfortunately it will not be possible to move or refund your workshop. We recommend that you try to find someone close to you to take your place if this is the case.
