1. Build & Sculpt: 2 hours of instruction, stay up to 30 min after to finesse. Create using our high fire clay and we will dry and fire the clay in the kiln.

2. Glaze: Return to the studio to add the beautiful glazes. Book at least one week after your build date. We recommend booking 1.5-2 hours, depending on the amount of detail :)

3. Pick Up: We will fire it again in the kiln. In approximately 10 days after glazing, it’ll be ready for pick up.

Stoneware Clay 101

The most important thing to remember when working with clay is to relax and enjoy the process of making hand made art! Clay is like magical mud for creating fantastic pottery and cool ceramics. First, you shape it into whatever you want. Then it has to air dry and go into a super-hot oven called a kiln, where it gets fired at really high temperatures (around 1,200°C!). After it’s been fired once it’s ready for the colourful and clear glazes! Finally. it gets fired again to cure the glazes to the clay.
